Generative Art Links Some links to Generative Art, Math & Fractals, and other creative ways of creating computional imagery. The list is not meant to be exhaustive: rather, it is a list of my favorite links. Generative Art Software General-Purpose Software Processing is probably the most used platform for Generative Art. GuruBlog GuruBlog local-guru.net Processing Sketches Links DrawPlus Draw, design, edit and create Use intricate vector drawing tools Turn photos into instant artwork Use professional colours Amazing shape blending techniques Paint with natural brushes So easy to use “Masses of sophisticated tools for working in a broad range of graphic design disciplines.”
[WIP] Procedural fractal mesh generation Hi everyone! Example settings for the branching generator. It's fast enough on my computer that it's pretty much realtime in the editor when changing values. Everything Visual » Generative, Coding & Interactive Posts Filed Under 'Generative, Coding & Interactive' Into the Dark – “Tearing Shadows” projection sculpture (teaser) by Robert Seidel “Tearing Shadows is a new projection sculpture by Berlin-based artist Robert Seidel. Fragments of projection, sculpture and sounds perfoliate the gallery space, allowing the viewer to create endlessly varied audio-visual compositions by wandering around, essentially becoming a part of the artwork itself.” “Tearing Shadow” by Robert Seidel is on show from 23rd of February to 13th of April 2013 at the 401contemporary gallery in Berlin, Germany.

Fractal Lab - sub.blue History Fractal Lab started around the beginning of 2011 as my first explorations rendering fractals in the browser with WebGL. Previously I had created renderers using Adobe PixelBender and QuartzComposer, which both had the advantage of easy integration into Photoshop and AfterEffects but were very limited when it came to interactively exploring the fractal space. Fractals are by nature highly detailed and so the smallest change to an input parameter can often result in dramatic differences in the output shape. In order to properly explore the space (and discover hidden gems that coalesce at specific parameter combinations) I decided to build a new UI (that had to nice to use!)

Research - Technologies - Generative Art: protoquadro Ever-evolving Protoquadro art starts out conventionally enough with a series of photos and images with very specific properties along the artist’s chosen theme. A software algorithm designed according to the laws of chaos is then applied to select and combine different aspects of the photographs to create unique and constantly evolving works of art that can be displayed on flat screens or projected onto suitable surfaces in places ranging from homes, offices and hotels to shops, museums and other public buildings. Such is the nature of the technique that the resulting artwork will never repeat itself, and even the artist is unable to predict precisely which direction it will evolve in. So unique is each creation that two protoquadros generated using the same set of photos and algorithm will even develop differently. Fascination Philips Research first became involved in the generative art movement out of sheer fascination with the technique.
How to Create Amazing Terrariums That'll Green Up Your Space Year-Round Avid gardeners and outdoor lovers tend to mope all winter long because of the lack of greenery around them, but there's an easy way to fix that! Indoor plants give any space a lively splash of green, and terrariums aren't just beautiful—they're fun to make too. Any glass container can be transformed into a terrarium, from a tiny glass pendant to a 50-gallon fish tank, so you can have several all around your home in all shapes and sizes, with an assortment of different plants inside! Read on to learn how you can make your own today.
Generative Art in Illustrator: Scriptographer They say the devils’ in the details, and while working with vectors can be fast and freeing, it can also cause a designer to obsess over every last point. A good way to counteract this is to inject some randomness into your design. That’s where the illustrator plugin Scriptographer comes and saves you.
