Justin Livi uses Processing to create images that mimic traditional watercolor on heavy weight paper on the border between abstract and representational.
Like Geode, the streaks remind me of layers in rocks, but this one I feel breaks from that boundary. The various colors evoke landscapes, seascapes and skyscapes. The pseudo-abstract qualities feel rather Japanese – an association I am quite pleased with. In my opinion Japanese artists have produced some of the best water-based images to date.

- Paysages [Processing] Pierre Commenge aka Emoc creates knitted like photographs using Processing. The application, with no UI, follows deterministic rules where every pixel of the picture is given pictorial qualities from its components in a color space. At the end, the original photography is reworked with more or less transformations depending on some parameters tweaks in the code. The results are beautiful images that sometimes adopt cartoon like qualities and at others create alternative new landscapes of colour texture and scale. See video below. emoc.org | emoc on flickr | vimeo See emoc's openprocessing page for more code examples and codelab.fr : a french speaking community of practice about code and DIY for digital […]
- Graffiti Stencil Wall [openFrameworks] Built with openFrameworks, Alex Beim and Tangible Interaction keep on making the graffiti wall better and better. This is a little demo of the new stencils function they have added together with new interface to load brushes (spray paints). The video was shot at Draw by Night, a Vancouver event organized by Myron Campbell. For more projects and their recently launched new site, see tangibleinteraction.com See also: Graffiti Analysis 2.0 [openFrameworks] EyeWriter […]
- PRESS + [Inspiration] Latest creation by Benjamin Ducroz with sound design by Samuel Acres is a beautiful piece bridging digital and analogue in the form of this minute or so animated short. What may appear as a digitally generated animation is actually frame by frame composition created out of hand effected print-outs. See images below + watch the clip in HD. See this + more wonderful work at […]
- RibbonPaint [Cinder, Mac] Created by Mario Gonzalez and currently in development, RibbonPaint is a drawing application for OSX. Instead of resorting to traditional brushes, RibbonPaint uses a ribbon like shape, always deforming as a drawing element. As you move your cursor across the screen you are continuously deforming the ribbon (the brush), trails are left behind on mouse down. Different colour modes are also included although I thought I'd stick to black and white with my examples, too beautiful to spoil with colour (right click - open in new windows for full size goodness). The idea behind RibbonPaint is to create a paint brush that could not exist in real life. Based on the movement of a ribbon, a small hand movement is exaggerated as the energy moves outward. Amplifying relative force on each segment, while decaying its absolute force. It is inspired by a few young kids I saw playing in the park with long ribbons during the summer. Applications includes 9 parameters that can be modified; BristleCount ( how many bristles the brush will contain ), BrushRadius ( radius of the brush), FilamentSpacing ( space between each brush filament - note it fans out toward the ends ), FilimentCount ( how many brush filaments ), FrictionMin ( how the brush moves ), FrictionMax ( how the brush moves ), Gravity ( applies constant downward force to the brush ), ChaseSpeed ( how fast the ribbon chases your mouse ), Alpha ( Opacity of ribbon when painting ). In addition, pressing the letter S will save a PNG file to your home folder alongside with a text file that contains all your settings. Should you want to use those settings again, all you need to do is drag and drop the .txt file onto application's windows (thank you Cinder!). Available soon at ribbonpaint.com Created […]
- Type Drawing [iPhone] TypeDrawing is an iPhone app that lets you drawing with letters! Type a sentence or word you want to say, set the background, choose the font and draw. Just released version 1.1 adds function to set background paper from photo album or by taking a picture with the camera. Multi-language & PDF export will be supported soon but for now, save to library button helps avoid the cumbersome screengrab combo. TypeDrawing originally started with an online project in year 2005 which already includes many interesting drawings. Only a small disappointment is that the iPhone app can't upload/add pictures to the online project. Understandable of course as the online flash app would most probably require a rewrite. For now, you are invited to join this Flickr group to share your Type Drawings. TypeDrawing is nevertheless a fun new way to explore drawing type and a valuable addition to the ever growing number of great drawing apps on the iPhone. Main Features: - Type a sentence or word - Choose a font - Choose a background paper - Save your artwork at Photo Album Platform: iPhone Version: 1.1 Cost: $0.99 Developer: Hansol […]
- Puddle Builder 03 [Processing] Used for the Posters and flyers for The Puddle (Stall 6), Andreas Gysin with Sidi Vanetti created this Processing for the production of the rasters, eventually screen printed on coloured paper. Built with a modified version of Toxi’s cp5magic. Try the applet version of the Puddle Builder 03 (PDF export is disabled). Andreas Gysin. Born in Zürich. Design and code in Lugano, Switzerland. Occasionally teaching interaction at SUPSI, Lugano and ECAL, Lausanne.

- rgb petri [Processing, iPhone, iPad] Created by Jeremy Awon and based on his processing sketch from about three years ago, rgb petri allows you to grow colors like bacteria in a petri dish and explore the spectrum of your iPhone & iPad display. Each perimeter pixel copies itself outwards, with slightly mutated color. Tap anywhere to start growth, tapping once in a screen corner to bring up the menu, pan and zoom by pinching is included, tap twice and hold over colour to sample a new starting colour. Tap the sampling circle to restart with this colour. You can also create a circle which blocks the growth by tapping twice over empty space. Whilst details of port are limited, I took the liberty to assume it was made using openFrameworks. Made with cocos2d. You can also try the java applet version here: jeremyawon.info/rgbp/ Platform: iPhone/iPad - Universal Version: 1.0 Cost: $0.99 Developer: Jeremy […]
- Soak, Dye in Light [Processing, Kinect] “Soak, Dye in light.” by everyware (2011) is an empty canvas but when you touch it, its elastic surface stretches and gets suffused with projected vivid colors mimicking fabric absorbing dye. Poking and rubbing with hands or resting their body on this spandex canvas allows visitors to soak this canvas in virtual dye and create own patterns. Dying fabric is a time-honored tradition of humankind. Local materials such as herbs, flowers, rocks, juice of animals or shells have been used through the dying process. Especially in Korea, people have deep affection toward the unique colors and textures of fabric dyed with traditional materials. Now in the age of new media, we tried a whole new way of coloring fabrics with the essential materials of new media, ‘light’ and ‘interactivity’. Also, as a meta-creative interactive installation, ‘Soak’ can be expanded for creating garments with personalized patterns or textile productions using today’s digital fabric printing technologies. Created using Processing and Kinect. Simulated watercolor by GPU accelerated cellular […]
