CC Statement

CurlyCode
-statement.
After having presented my software at the event named Share.Berlin (thanks Tofa and Ilan for the possibility), and talking to a few people i decided to write the followings as a statement.
1. CurlyCode (CC) is a non commercial software. It is a media art project of mine.
2. CC is the realization of my way of thinking and visualizing. The let people to acces to it or use it is like a giving a piece from miself.
3. CC is a very complex 3D, realtime drawing application, with several drawing effects (some of them are audio reactive) , shaders, and postFX-s.
4. CC is BlackandWhite or greyscale now.
5. CC allows you to make a gestural expression of the influence the music made in you.
6. CC is the most direct relation with screen via tablet.
7. There are no complicated interfaces, just the keyboard and 8 knobs or faders or iphone.
8. CC engine is ready and will not be chaged until i goin’ deeper in Quartz Composer 4., but i will add some more effects and shader, to multiply the number of the combination.
9. CC is very similar to me. Curly and sometimes very chaothic.

share your glitch

26 08 2009

Exiledsurfer mentioned me this morning, that a new book: Glitch -designing imperfection  will come out soon . So i will share my glitches as well, tomorrow during the berlin share event.

Curly Code is my secret weapon

24 08 2009

Its time to talk a bit about “curly code”.

curl3

When i started my deeper adventures in the world of generated forms and structures, one of my idea, lets say desire was to build an application up, with the ability of freehand drawing in a 3 dimensional space, to animate those drawings, using as a performance platform or just to render some nice looking stills out.

The first results were very geometrical, drawings without traces, i mean  a direct gestural drawing, made by a human hand.

s24

Playing a bit more with the line movements, its started to be more human made, more natural. But in a certain point i just trapped. I felt like being in a technical dead end. i made several researches about processing and i have tried other generative softwares, how those are able to reproduce a quasi same result.

s34

The research was a good point to go forward, or how to say… make a very important experiment, with the digital line, by my hand. and i started to involve some characters and figures.

s48

I’ve liked the result and i tried to involve some colors and forms, but my world became very organic again. At this experiment i used 2D graphics, with many repetitions, rotating, transforming.

gre4

At this point i stopped my work  and left it as an unfinished experiment. The first real result was the “.get control”, and this screenshot.

But today i just picked the project up again and was thinking how to continue. Made some screenshots with more improvements and succeed to rewrite the root of the project.

and yes the new QC will open some more possibilities how to go forward. I’ve made some tests:)

for more screenshots, please check my flickr page, oh and yes! why the name is “curly code”. The answer is not so complicated…





ikea pictures

22 08 2009

After visitin ikea, and eating cheap hotdog, deserved some picture snails for the new flat, no chance to not check the paintings made for the mass.

After putting the 30kg couch to the car, decided to generate kind of ikea style paintings. QC , GL tools from kineme. Nothing else. And yes listening dutch language classic music radio.

Now i go and take a look to the new QC.:)





more glitch 3d structures

21 08 2009

Forms, deforming and texturing by generated glitches. No shader was used this time.

I tried to put in my vj set but vdmx just gone very slow (normal render speed in QC is 60 fps).

disturbing your shader

15 08 2009

Its just some new artificial glitch producing, with the blend modes and textures. Some of my results are more than fun, according to the concept of generative surfaces with generative textures.

The way to put sound analyzzis and several parameters is awesome.

Picture 49

The concept of the experiment is to research this kind of sculpture like forms, distorting without shader as much as possible and use the shader in a non normal way, i was searching how i can modify the shader, where i can write an unexpected mathematical expression with incredibly non sense number and so get the temporary result like a fix, reproducible result.

Video demo is on the way, sound will be generative as well, taking place on my destructured performance.

Binary project getting closer…

13 08 2009

Nicky and I are working on our binary project. The project and the concept is clean, but the result is sometimes far away from what we would like to see.

After the first steps, this morning i was able to produce one of the structure, the cross.

Picture 30

Saying ‘produce’ i mean getting closer aesthetically to Nicky’s orginal drawings (stamps). Its important, because these draws are the fundaments of our work (how to make it interactive, how can we involve the digital vision as conceptual expansion).

Picture 31

The cross is not connected directly with any christian idea, its just a decent symbol which has different social aspects. But yes, i chose the cross form the symbols because its very easy to reproduce. The next will be the circle and after the infinity sign (huhh that won’t be easy).

Picture 32

The technical solution must be at the final version coded (maybe a little processing will help us). But for now (lets call it prototype) i used image pixelS plugin made and shared by Matthias Oostrik. Its a kind of continue or expand of the ‘classic’  image pixel. Not just giving the color and alpha information of one pixel, able to ‘scan’ the whole incoming picture and giving back a structure with the necessary information. Working as a scanner. After i made some improvements with the structure to add the noizz and some fake gravity. Quartz Composer off course.

Last line david, you are in late -i have to go! Thanks to Rinboku to put image pixels plugin in my field of view.
