Ghost is an interactive installation of a snow storm, raging within an abandoned, barren landscape. Within this storm the visitor can make out a procession of human forms which seemingly try to find a way out. The bodies are remnants of the previous visitors, their ghosts, trapped in the hostile environment.
From custom geometry to adding textures to 2D and 3D shapes, Amnon Owed shows you practical examples of a number of crucial building blocks for 2D/3D Processing projects.
Doing spectacular things with very little code has a long tradition in the demoscene. Born out of necessity when home computers were slow and memory space scarce, pushing against artificial boundaries became a popular “sport” when PC hardware power blew up. Time and again we’ve seen demosceners tighten the limits in search of a good […]
I’ve wanted to learn more about GLSL shaders for a while now. GLSL is a high-level shading language created to give developers more direct control of the graphics pipeline. In short, you can tell your GPU directly what it should be doing. These last two months I’ve been reading up on syntax and diving into shader development […]
Worthy winner of the PC 4kB intro competition at Revision 2012 and latest example of the compact-coding tradition exercised within the demoscene, Hartverdrahtet by Akronyme Analogiker is a three minute long audio-visual trip into a procedural fractalverse, compressed into a minuscule piece of software.
If you recall “Soak, Dye in Light” project by everyware, Cloud Pink is the latest iteration, taking on the analogy of cloud rather than paint soaked fabric. The installation invites participants to “touch the pink clouds” drifting on a giant fabric screen suspended in the air.
By Stephen Schieberl and Joshua Noble We’ve heard it plenty of times when people are talking about working with the Kinect: “we’ll just get the point cloud and turn it a mesh”. You may have even thought that yourself at some point, “this is going to be easy” Well, it’s actually fairly difficult to do […]
These are recent experiments by Alvin C, working with OpenGL/GLSL Bloom & Blur filters in Processing. The demos feature Alvin generating interesting complex structures from simple behaviours/rules. He writes: This exercise experiments with a particle field where different forms may emerge as a result of interactions between particles. These forms are created by connecting particles into […]
Created by Tom Beddard aka subblue, Fractal Lab is a WebGL based web application for rendering 2D and 3D fractals in real-time and the latest in Tom’s research in complex and visually stunning 3D fractal structures. As we already reported few months back, Tom already created some truly stunning works (see bottom of the post) […]
Created by Marcin Ignac and yet another project selected for the WrittenImages book, Cindermedusae is a generative encyclopedia of imaginary sea creatures. I wanted to explore generating organic and believable forms so I have chosen to try with a jellyfish. I have been following their creation since the beginning and really enjoyed object evolution, from the first sketches […]
An element that is part of a bigger project call BioRhythm, Reza Ali created this beautiful generative openFrameworks application to render noised form with various shaders included. This is glsl noise distortion on a sphere in real-time and you can modify it via a number of parameters. The app also uses GLV, a GUI building […]
