Sian Evans


Exploring computer-human interaction and the relationship it establishes

Sian Evans is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Leicester. Having been introduced to creative technology in the final year of her undergraduate degree, she is pursuing this new interest through the Creative Technology Masters.
After being introduced to the works of Harold Cohen and Fabrizio Poltronieri, she is now focusing on exploring human-computer interaction (HCI) and the relationships that experience establishes.
The exhibited piece is the first HCI code Sian developed. In the drawing program, the audience has the power to initiate the relationship and allow the computer to have an input on the drawing through colour.
The second program solely relies on the computer and the trust that it will execute the rules given by the artist to display the drawings by video. It also is responsible for selecting the mathematics that combine the images together. Like both of her inspirations mentioned above, Sian wishes to implement the use of machine learning or artificial intelligence into her code to allow her creative coding to have a larger input on the pieces she creates. 

Party Draw

The exhibited piece, Party Draw, is the first human-computer interactive code Sian has developed. The piece is designed for young children and aims to get them interacting with technology. In the drawing program, the child has the power to initiate the relationship and allow the computer to have an input on the drawing through colour. The second program
solely relies on the computer and the trust that it will execute the rules given by the artist, to combine the drawings into a video. Further details into the process and artwork can be found in the informative video by Sian Evans.





DigiPlays: A Collective Journey is an assortment of works exploring innovative and interactive technologies. The works shown in this exhibition are complimentary to each artists individual convergence of technology and creative practice.
