Art From Code: Generative Graphics

[Keith Peters]‘ blog Art From Code is devoted to his beautiful graphics from computer source code, also known as generative art. Although [Peters] is reluctant to reveal his source code, algorithmic graphics can be created with the help of tools like ActionScript, Flash, and Flex. There are some great tutorials that can start you on the path to making your own evocative art.

    My personal favorite is Context Free Art. It is (sort of) a scripted recursive fractal generator:

    My 2003 senior art show was ‘images from code'; I’m glad to see that the genre neither began nor ended with me.

    I have an old roomate who is doing a lot of work with scripting and code generated images. He uses rhinoscript and has made a lot of progress. I am attaching his link not only because his work is great but also because he tends to put a lot of his code up freely and wants people to use it.

    The Electric Sheep project is quite stunning to see.
    The project animates and evoles fractal flames, randomly merging aspects of the code (art) from it’s parents, to create entirely new works.

    cmon guys,

  10. Hi nice post, i have come across your site once before when searching for something so i was just wondering something. I love your theme, would it happen to be a free one i can download, or is it a custom one you had made? In a few months i may get my own domain, but i don’t know how to setup themes so i don’t mind paying someone to make me a nice one and set it all up. Do you know any good WordPress designer companies, thanks for your help. :)
