Our new bundle of joy arrived kicking and screaming between 10 and 11 pm last night August 29th, he weighed in at five pounds and 14 ounces and is 19 inches long. He is premature at 34 weeks but pretty big for an early baby. He is in the NICU since he arrived before 35 weeks but everything looks good! He is a handsome little fella. We still have not settled on a name yet but we are thinking about Riley Aldon Relyea. Sat, 26 Aug 2006

Chris is doing some nice things with the reductionizer check out Chris Ashley’s blog for more great html drawings!
I plan to have CTRL z working for undo and a fix for the floating point math error that is causing the pencil tool to be several columns off in some layouts in the next release. Sat, 19 Aug 2006

reductionizer alpha v.003 update re-released loading bugs fixed!
Rosenquist remixed by D‘Aulerio then reduced and doodled on by me
v.003 builds on v.002 Chris Ashley expressed the need to be able to draw directly over an image so now you can import an image to be reduced straight to a table OR import an image to be used as a table background image with another layer over the top that can be reduced and drawn in. The SHIFT key will hide the HTML table over the background image. Currently you will need to go into the html and add the background image manually. In this version, when drawing over an image, #FFFFFF is exported as transparent, I plan to add the ability to customize the transparent color in the next update.

The reductionizer project page
Be sure to check out Chris Ashley’s blog as he will be using the reductionizer with his html drawings August 2006.
The reductionizer is a new software art project in the alpha stages of development. It started simply enough as a bitmap to html table generator. After some email conversations with artist Chris Ashley, it is developing into a low fidelity artistic tool. It can save images in html table format or png format. It is currently being developed in Adobe Director. The alpha versions 001 and 002 are available for download.
Be sure to check out Chris Ashley’s blog as he will be using the reductionizer with some of his html drawings this month. Ashley does a new html drawing every day and he has been doing them for some time.
Yes, the title at the top of this post was generated using the software. Sat, 12 Aug 2006
Artist Tony D‘Aulerio and RTCAG
I was initially quite surprised at the quality of output of his experiments. I see now that the images are drawing most of their power from the original art work. He searched for several artists work and came up with some very nice results. The Villegle search above and one of the Warhol searches on his blog are my two favorites.

Robert Spahr crufts
Mire Cruft (after Karl) 0507070926, July 07, 2005 9:26 am EST Created by fully automated scripts using source images from the Internet.
Juxtapostion and conflict of disparate source material has been a consistent theme in my work, ranging from images ripped from the mass media, plaster combined with tar, or the smell of butter and the sound of melting ice.
This cruft algorithm extracts images from the NYtimes home page once every hour. The images from this page are then manipulated to generate the three panel overlapping cruft. Over time the changes or lack of change seen in the crufts reflect the news cycle of the NYtimes.com site. It has been included in the ArtBase of Rhizome.org at the New Museum.
