Up and Down the Ladder of Abstraction

Likewise, when creating abstractions, stepping down is as important as stepping up. Here, we take the abstraction from the previous section, and overlay a concrete representation on top of it. That is, we draw the trajectory that represents all time, but we also draw the car at some particular time. How do we select which particular time to show? The Nature of Code. “Pathological monsters!

The Nature of Code

Cried the terrified mathematician Every one of them a splinter in my eye I hate the Peano Space and the Koch Curve I fear the Cantor Ternary Set The Sierpinski Gasket makes me wanna cry And a million miles away a butterfly flapped its wings On a cold November day a man named Benoit Mandelbrot was born” — Jonathan Coulton, lyrics from “Mandelbrot Set” Once upon a time, I took a course in high school called “Geometry.” Perhaps you did too.

This tutorial shows you how to make a 3D particle effect, using just a few ellipses, no additional plugins and a special “blur” filter made accessible in Edge Animate and CSS3. This tutorial explains how to utilise a number of features in Edge Animate, from creating shapes and manipulating them using filters, to grouping them as Symbols to move multiple elements quickly and efficiently, rather than tweening individual particles.

Once you’re done, you can use this as a background for a web-based gallery banner, and perhaps layer content between your new particles; or even as a full-screen background for your website, constantly moving slowly to give your design a really subtle yet dynamic feel!

Kurt Vonnegut claimed that his prettiest contribution to culture wasn’t a popular novel like “Cat’s Cradle” or “Slaughterhouse-Five,” but a largely forgotten master’s thesis he wrote while studying anthropology at the University of Chicago. The thesis argued that a main character has ups and downs that can be graphed to reveal the taxonomy of a story, as well as something about the culture it comes from. “The fundamental idea is that stories have shapes which can be drawn on graph paper, and that the shape of a given society’s stories is at least as interesting as the shape of its pots or spearheads,” Vonnegut said.
