Substrate Watercolor (Jared Tarbell)

Another port of Processing code to JavaScript from the work by Jared Tarbell. This one is a good example of visualizing a system with emerging properties. The rules it follows can be summarized to: paint "cracks" that grow in straight lines, when the crack reaches a border, stop and start new cracks somehwere else. The results are rich in complexity. See Tarbell`s original code.

Empathy (Kyle McDonald)

I found McDonald's work to be unique in the way that a simple interaction seem to create a tactile experience. At the same time, the abstract render suggests to me a responsive simulation of a living system with "emotions". As the title suggests, he was aiming for "empathy". To learn how he did this, I translated the code he originally created on Processing into JavScript. All credits go to Kyle McDonald. See the original source code and more of his work at kylemcdonald.net

Earthquakes Path

Dynamic rendering of seismic data over a Colombian map. The drawing decisions are made depending on the locations and dates of the seismic events.

Binary Ring (Jared Tarbell)

A translation of Jared Tarbell's hypnotic "Binary Ring" from Processing to JavaScript. At first I thought this might be too much for the 2d canvas renderer. Yet it seems to work just fine. I really like Tarbell's work and since he shares the source code, I am going to do a few more of these to learn how he gets all those organic images. See his work at complexification.net.

Now Loop

Draw a line connecting the current year-month-day-hour-minute-second-millisecond. Aided by code, it is possible to animate in the "now", what does this mean for animation?. This sketch is a starting point for considering not only "real-time" animation, but (perhaps more interesting), explore that ephemeral state in flux where all that one has accumulated in life suddenly has a chance to act upon oneself, the rational mind has no time to consider anymore, the "now" is like an epic collision of all that we are, yet it manifests itself organized, mundane, often irrelevant.
