    Images created in an ongoing conversation between @pixelsorter and @a_quilt_bot, two automated image-generating twitter bots. 

    The creator of @pixelsorter wrote a blog post about an earlier image loop with @badpng.

  2. Been playing around with Hockney.style joiners this holiday. Quite refreshing and fun but do need to do more interesting things with them in future. It’s all about compressing time, y’see.


  3. First time-lapse movie I think I’ve seen that is artistically, technically, socially and politically perfect. Am in awe.

    Previously, previously. Also, I could probably knock this up in d3 if I sat and tinkered with code for long enough.

    Edit: Of course, Mike Bostock already has a rotating version.


  7. Developed at the Ars Electronica Futurelab, Spaxels (a portmanteau word from space pixels) are LED-equipped quadcopters. They make up a drone swarm that can “draw” three-dimensional figures in midair.

    Creative coding project by Jason Lin can convert text into 3D geometric drawings, turning writing into a visual grammar - video embedded below:

    My latest Processing project!

    … I came up with this idea because my last project used an excel sheet and received insane amounts of numbers and data.
    This time I wanted to use a text file and receive insane amounts of words and letters and most importantly, punctuation!

    I had seen pictures of “sentence maps” before where a line was created and it got longer with every word and made a turn every time the sentence ended. Colors would change with every character or some other factor.

    Basically I wanted to take this idea and make it HUGE. I wanted an entire 3D explore-able environment.

    The video explains what I chose to do for every single type of punctuation mark.

    The project hasn’t been made available to the public yet, but at Jason’s Tumblr blog (obeserhino) you can send him suggestions to try out. [Link]
