City Built is an algorithmically generated line-drawn city skyline created in the Processing language. City Built was shown as a projection on a building facade most evenings from 5—9pm November 15th 2019 through February 2020 in Union Square, Somerville Massachusetts. City Built is supported by a grant from the Somerville Arts Council, a local agency supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
“Slightly Structured Visual Noise” is a constantly evolving visual experience running throughout the evening at Cirque Noir X Houston X Scorpion (November 10th 2018) reacting to the DJ’s music live. “Slightly Structured Visual Noise” runs unattended as an autonomous agent-based model taking cues from the DJ’s sound in addition to following beautiful semi-harmonious gradient noise spaces like ridged multifractal, Perlin, Voronoi and spherical.
I created a set of sound-reactive Processing sketches that played throughout the evening generating unique and ever-changing visuals on multiple screens, walls and surfaces always reacting to the ever changing DJ’s beats.
Video-2-Slit-Scan is an App I created that allows you to create a slit-scan image from a video. It provides a graphical interface for adjusting slit position and size. Video-2-Slit-Scan can support very large videos with modest RAM since it streams in the input video and writes out the output image to disk in chunks.
