The main link between painting and architectural design is found in the process. Creating, designing and /or setting up the original program, machine, or system (form generator, idea trap…) to create its base reality are the first steps in the process. These systems create a deeper inherent complexity, or realism, on the outset. The next step is running and refining this machine. The final step is in working this creation until it becomes architecture or emotive realism. This initial system can be a physics or intuition based simulation of natural phenomena.
