Project #3627 — iteration #137

When the Impressionists first exhibited their work, they derided as lunatics by the art establishment. The vitriol then -- "wallpaper in its embryonic state is more finished than that seascape" (referring to Impression: sunrise by Monet) -- reminds me of criticism that generative art, and the NFT world more generally, are subject to now. "Impossible cathedrals" is a tribute to rebels who dare to see the world differently.

Since generative art is often criticized as cold and austere, I took this as a challenge to reproduce the spirit of impressionism. Impossible cathedrals -- interwoven arches that cannot exist in reality -- hint at some of the favorite subjects of the impressionists.

The title alludes to Italo Calvino's novel Invisible Cities, a rebel in another context. Other artists who I had in mind during creation: the Japanese woodblock printing artists Kawase Hasui and Hiroshi Yoshida; American painter JAM Whistler.

Impossible cathedrals was written in p5.js using elements of code by eeedg (thanks)
