Senseless Drawing Bot #2 by Takahiro Yamaguchi and So Kanno

Senseless Drawing Bot #2 is the new version of it’s predecesor, version #1 created by Takahiro Yamaguchi and So Kanno. As with the version #1, the machine is built around the similar concept – to produce highly unpredictable results using the inertia generated by movement. The first version used the liner movement to swing spray-can equipped mechanical arms where the […]

Composite [iPad, openFrameworks]

Inspired by the neo-dadaist collages of Robert Rauschenberg, about a year ago James Alliban decided to write software which would allow him to quickly paint using using a webcam.

Thermochromic Clock [Arduino]

Thermochromic Clock by CW&T is a 4-digit 7-segment timepiece. Each segment in the display is made with a length of nichrome wire and then covered by a thick layer of black thermochromic paint. Time is displayed by applying voltage to the nichrome wire. As the wire sustains an electric current, it heats up the surrounding thermochromic paint, […]

Watercolor Sediment [Processing]

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 […]

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 […]

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.

Body Paint [openFrameworks]

“Body Paint” by Mehmet Akten is an interactive installation and performance allowing users to paint on a virtual canvas with their body, interpreting gestures and dance into evolving compositions. Custom software analyzes live feed from infra-red cameras in real-time, and converts shape and motion into colors, drips and brush-strokes. The software was written in C++ […]
