Beautiful natural forms created by a computational growth process.
Check out the 3D printed wearable forms here.

Bruce Riley / Psy-Painter

24 Dec

Chicago-based artist Bruce Riley fills canvases with abstract organic forms made from layer after layer of dripped paint and poured resin. While looking at images of his work online, it’s difficult to grasp the depth and scale of each piece which can be penetrated by light from multiple angles, casting shadows deep into the artwork. Riley works using a number of experimental techniques, frequently incorporating mistakes and unexpected occurrences into the thick paintings that appear almost sculptural in nature. Filmmaker Jason Stanfield recently stopped by Riley’s studio and shot this brief studio visit. You can see more of his paintings on Flickr, and at Packer Schopf Gallery.

And Merry Christmas to Everyone !

An animated trip in nature with excellent execution!

SPARKED: A Live Interaction Between Humans and Quadcopters

22 Dec

Cirque du Soleil, ETH Zurich, and Verity Studios have partnered to develop a short film featuring 10 quadcopters in a flying dance performance. The collaboration resulted in a unique, interactive choreography where humans and drones move in sync. Precise computer control allows for a large performance and movement vocabulary of the quadcopters.

“Space is Everything” — TxK by Jeff Minter (llamesoft)

21 Dec

Jeff Minter has been designing video games since the early days of the medium. And since the very beginning an air of anarchy and trippyness has been a constant in his creations. Since Tempest 2000 he has been refining what I’d like to call the psychedelic “space” shooter (look here for Space Giraffe).

But he has released a game/ “light synthesizer” that is actually called Psychedelia as early as 1984.

Check out the man’s work! You won’t be disappointed.

Synoid (1983)

20 Dec

An impressive psychedelic video feedback loop, made by pointing an old style tube camera at a monitor and slightly adjusting the camera aperture and focus. There’s a real mastery of form iteration, no post processing whatsoever, and oscillating analogue audio sequences to complement this hypnotic spiral trip.
