Infinite Disintegration

We are like waves, rushing towards the shore, moment to moment made up of new matter. This particle generating system attempts to explore this idea. A familiar ring form exists in a cycle of emergence and dissipation. New particles emit on an ellipse in three dimensional space. A noise field guides the direction and speed…

Space Flight

Endless generative flight through a field of stars inspired by my partnership in Deep Space Coffee. Flying through a field of stars was one of the first great computer programs I remember as a child.  Breaking through the third dimension felt great.  It was often implemented in the form of screensavers or animation demonstrations.  You…

Circles Inside Circles

Packing circles into a finite space is fun.  Especially when you use lazy algorithms that place and test, rather than do any hard math.  One such classic algorithm is this, place a very small circle into a field and grow that circle until it hits another circle or the edge.  Repeat until no room is left for…

Binary Ages

A system of path tracing particles evolves continually from an initial creation event.  Ages of darkness play arbitrarily with ages of light.  This is an adaptation of Binary.Ring (2003).   Programmed in Processing By Jared S. Tarbell In Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA Around 9:16am August 3, 2015 Based on earlier work titled Binary.Ring (2003)
