Burroughs (click here for pics only) Here to There [oF] - "programmed illustrations" by @theowatson + Emily Gobeille aka @design-io / + WIN ONE! Inspired by the childhood memories of artworks on their bedroom walls, Here to There is a project by Emily Gobeille & Theo Watson (Design I/O) created two years ago, now available as a limited run of prints. For the project, the duo developed a suite of software tools using openFrameworks to programmatically build elements based around concepts like algorithm, permutation, cause and effect, and topology to name a few. More than 25 mini openFrameworks applications were created that would output graphics as postscript. The graphics outputted by the OF apps became the basic building blocks for the posters, which were combined with character design, narrative and illustration, to create the story of the two worlds of Here To There: the ‘City’ and the ‘Jungle’. Some of the apps would process input input images, while others were drawing tools which would be used to create custom elements for the posters.
