I have uploaded a variety of free mp3s, art, screensavers and wallpapers all made by me. You can download mp3s from Ropelab, evilcomputergenius, and 7 Vials. Help yourselves! I have been uploading new art, music and screensavers pretty frequently so check back often.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: Animated Pixel Art Portraits
Algorithmic art
Click to enlarge image.
This series is a collection of animated pixel drawing engines that sample pixels and draw an image while you watch. I have organized the collection into three pop culture-esque categories; the Good the Bad, and the Ugly.

I am going to be adding to this section periodically as the wheels of time, pop culture and the mass media provide good candidates for these art engines to process.

Animated Algorithmic Art Studies
Algorithmic art
Click to enlarge image.
I have created a collection of animated art engines that sample pixels and draw an image while you watch. The engines directly sample pixels from source imagery as well as draw based on sine, cosine and other math functions. I am going to be adding to this series periodically as I come up with good subject matter for these art engines to process.

Currently I have been investigating how the engines process mechanical versus organic subject matter but who knows where it will lead.

Asteroid Mining Base Screensaver
Watch mining transport spacecraft run supply routes across ancient alien terrain. See drone saucers fly over the refining facilities and transport craft carry cargo to the mother ship.

Real time contextual visual art on demand.
The Real Time Contextual Art Layout Generator(250k opens in new window) is the first in a series of almost a dozen interactive contextual pieces that I am working on. The concepts and theories behind the work are located on the "Real Time Contextual Art Generator Theory" page. Essentially it uses the Google image search engine to contextually match images with user entered query terms. It takes those images and text and then algorithmically lays them out using the rule of thirds and so on.

The above images are real time algorithmically generated images from the query terms "disgust", "disfigured" and "toilet art". When I complete my series later this year (2005) or next year, I intend to solicit locations for a large physical display space using projectors and some undisclosed technical tomfoolery to allow people to interact with the contextual art in real time. Go ahead and play with the Real Time Contextual Art Layout Generator, you know you want to.

Algorithmic Art Screensaver var08

This screensaver is similar to my very old yet popular neo-futurist art generator shockwave movie done way back in 1995. That work was partially inspired by the Italian Futurist Cubist art movement. This work is based on an interactive algorithmic art work inspired by the neo-futurist art generator.
