This video is created real time in a custom particle painting program I created using c++ in openframeworks 0.06 + code blocks.
Influenced by the cold war, bombshells, Brigitte Bardot, Jane Mansfield, Marilyn Monroe, Elke Summer, Ann Margaret, Sophia Loren, Stella Stevens, Audrey Hepburn and artist Ed Paschke.
Music: "If we live our lives the right way" by Don Relyea, because I feel too lazy to bother getting this into itunes you can just have it, see the link below.

I made this piece specifically for the Alys Beach Digital Graffitti festival in the format they specified of 1024x768. Of course there is no guarantee Bombshell will get accepted as that festival is pretty competitive. Wish me luck =) So I will probably make standard aspect ratio HD versions for Culture TV and Janet Oh Gallery as well.Sat, 06 Mar 2010
I have been doing some research on patterns for my particle drawing project and found Tsevis photo stream on flickr. Tsevis is an artist/designer and professor living in Greece who uses scripting combined with Photoshop and Synthetik Studio Artist. Tsevis' entire photostream is extremely compelling and worth checking out.Tue, 02 Mar 2010
