White Night, with Source Code

This is my projection from White Night last month. I was hit by bloody Swine Flu so never got to see it live, so repeated thanks both to Sarah Bird and the BANG team for organising, and J4mie Matthews for videoing it.

For the source code, this is how it breaks down:

I like to open source my generative art code because I would never be so bold as to declare my work the definitive rendering of any particular algorithm. I want others to join me in exploring these ideas and hopefully improve upon my work.

The 100 works at http://abandonedart.org are not intended to be a gallery, they are meant to be a recipe book. So, please, don’t just look at this video and say “pah, I could do better”. Take my source code and prove it.
