Dreamlines

Dreamlines
Dreamlines was an interactive net-art work created in 2005. It lived a long (in Internet-era time, anyway) and happy life, but it is no longer functional: the technologies it was based on became obsolete, especially the Java browser plugin. It could be recreated with current web technologies, but until I get round to doing that, I decided to take it down to avoid frustration for visitors who might still come here. While you can’t have the first-hand experience at the moment, you can look at some documentation to get an idea of what was it like. The original description of the work Some screen captures on Flickr Video captures of different search strings on Vimeo: plum, raspberry, vacation A more documentary video uploaded by Tomás Rawski that shows the user interaction with the work You can also download the original source code [ZIP] (beware, it was made with Processing 1.0 and it is not going to run without significant updates).

NodalGenesis Artsology Click and drag your mouse on the canvas to create different colored rectangular shapes and create a geometric abstract "painting." Each time you make a new geometric shape, a random color combination will appear, so no two paintings will ever be the same. Experiment with different designs, whether you overlap them or keep them separate. If you come up with something you really like, take a screen shot and send it to us and we'll start a geometric art gallery. If you want some inspiration, scroll down below the canvas and check out some geometric art paintings from famous artists. Clear your canvas and start a new painting Here's a few examples of geometric abstract art painted by famous artists:

Tower of Heaven :: ALBINAL - Drawing Generator :: Generating images with flash is nothing new but following some recent client work I discovered the very powerful JPG and PNG encoder classes. The PNG one in particular allows you to save your flash creations with a transparent background. I put this to use by making a simple image generation system: The system can but run at full screen and will allow you to generate images using any palette ID from Colour Lovers. Here's some images I made earlier... 5 Top Sites To Download Free Kids Music That You’ll Love If you’ve got kids, you’ve no doubt thought about how you might be able to increase the size of their music collection for free.

Otomata 16 Jul 2011 Click on the grid below to add cells, click on cells to change their direction, and press play to listen to your music. Update: Click here to get Otomata for your iPhone / iPod / iPad! Official facebook page: Also this reddit page has many examples: And there is a subreddit for Otomata: Otomata is a generative sequencer. Each alive cell has 4 states: Up, right, down, left. at each cycle, the cells move themselves in the direction of their internal states. This set of rules produces chaotic results in some settings, therefore you can end up with never repeating, gradually evolving sequences. If you encounter something you like, just press “Copy Piece Link” and save it somewhere, or better, share it! Here is something from me to start with: And here is an action video: Here are replies to some common questions: Q: MIDI Output?

News I recently started playing with shaders in three.js and I wanted to share some of what I’ve discovered so far. Shaders are the ‘secret sauce’ of modern graphics programming and understanding them gives you a lot of extra graphical fire-power. For me the big obstacle to learning shaders was the lack of documentation or simple examples, so hopefully this post will be useful to others starting out. This post will focus on using pixel shaders to add post-processing effects to Three.js scenes. What is a Shader? A Shader is a piece of code that runs directly on the GPU. The big conceptual shift when considering shaders is that they run in parallel. There are 2 main types of shaders – vertex shaders and pixel shaders. Vertex Shaders generate or modify 3D geometry by manipulating its vertices. There are 2 different kinds of pixel shaders - Shaders that draw an image or texture directly. Pixel Shaders in Three.js Preview some of the three.js built-in shaders with this demo. GLSL Syntax More Shaders!

Flame Painter | online paint program Flame Painter is a unique paint program, it belongs to my 'I am an Artist' experimental project. I think with tools which inspires you, everyone can be an artist. You can try it here, change different brush settings and paint your own flame paintings. When you change the background from black to white, the palette changes from additive to subtractive and the feeling of the painting is very different. It's not easy to explain all brush parameters, so I leave this for your experimentation. Check out new Rebelle - the real watercolor and acrylic paint program, Amberlight - abstract art tool based on particles, or Fluidance motion effect program. You can try more experiments here. NEW: This is a new Flash version of Flame Painter Free, we removed the old Java version, because it is not anymore supported correctly by most of the browsers. Tools: FADE - fade in/out [ on | off ] GRADIENT - color gradient [ on | off ] COLOR - brush color SATURATION - brush saturation OPACITY - brush opacity

Internet Week Europe 2010 Hello. My Name's Paul and today I'm going to demo some neat features of HTML5 (and modern browser capabilities) through canvas (in fact, this background is a fullscreen canvas ~ we'll let this draw as we go through the talk). This won't cover absolutely everything in this field but will pick out a few features as examples for inspiration. Canvas is a HTML5 element that can be drawn on using Javscript. <canvas id="doodle" width="500" height="500"></canvas><script type="text/javascript"> var canvas = document.getElementById("doodle"); var context = canvas.getContext("2d"); context.fillRect(100, 100, 300, 300); </script> window.addEventListener("deviceorientation", captureOrientation, false); function captureOrientation(e) { alpha = e.alpha; beta = e.beta; gamma = e.gamma; } LAUNCH DEMO ~ Device orientation currently supported in Chromium It's low level drawing but don't throw away your current workflow More examples of three.js by @mrdoob NB ~ File API currently supported in Chrome
