Elemental Experiments 2

More experiments with using path start regionization to build elemental paint strokes in the paint synthesizer.

Ekman Faces

Playing around with a folder of Ekman faces (which are supposed to define perceptual axis for different emotional states).

Elemental Experiments

Simplistic paint stroke modulation generated during some testing.

Overlayer 2

Another gallery show screen grab during some testing.

Still more multi-cycle overlay experiments using auto-randomized gallery show features.

Distressed Look

More auto-randomized overlay experiments using new gallery show features.

Geo Overlay 2

Another gallery show geo overlay experiment using auto-masked randomized vectorizer settings.

Mr Bubble

Vectorizer gallery show overlay experiment.

Geo Overlay

Gallery show screen grab during adaptive auto-masked randomizing vectorizer technique session.

Generative overlay from a series of auto-randomized vectorizer gallery show cycles.

Grabbed this primitive abstraction during some gallery show testing.

Unarmed Civilian

Another gallery show cycle overlap buildup experiment. This kind of thing can get sloppy or chaotic due to the random nature of the whole process. But sometimes interesting things pop out. Like most autonomous randomizing generative processes, you need to pick through a lot of questionable images to find interesting one. You can use an image stream to save the entire automatic gallery show run, and then wade through the image folder after it's finished processing.

More gallery show experiments using adaptive source masking in conjunction with repeated cycles of auto-randomized vectorizer effects.

Screen grab from a gallery show run using randomized adaptive source masking and randomized vectorizer effects.

Robot Attack

Another stack filtering experiment based on a folder of 'killer robot' source imagery in combination with self randomizing temporal ip op effects.

Friday, February 13, 2015

TSP Paint 2

More expeiments with using the new traveling salesman problem solver sort option for path start regionization to build up an intelligent scan for creating a one step paint action effect.

TSP Paint

Used a path start regionization start generator to generate a set of points. I then used on the traveling salesman problem solver sort options to resort the start points. The brush size is adaptively modulated based on local color range. Interesting new approach to building up a painting effect in one action step.

TSP Sketch

Simple vector sketch effect derived from solving traveling salesman problem. The points used to define the sketch are derived from path start regionization in the paint synthesizer.

Continuing the series of stack filtering experiments using temporal ip op effects to process randomly selected 'killer robot' source images instead of temporally offset movie frames from a real video.

Campaign to Stop

More stack filtering experiments using 'killer robot' images as source frames for temporal ip op effects (as opposed to process an actual movie file with them). The temporal algorithms try to extrapolate temporal information from the series of randomly selected source images, leading to interesting visual effects.

Monsters Launch Attack

Trying out some new stack filtering experiments using mutated temporal operation effects to process a series of still images in a folder. Using a folder of 'killer robot' images.

Green Man

Continuing our trip down the automatic art gallery show lane. With self randomizing vectorizer effects overlaid over several gallery show cycles to build up multi-effect overlay imagery.

Friday, February 6, 2015

Overlay Parts 2

More experiments with self randomizing vectorizer technique and surprise me auto-masking options in gallery show. Building up overlay imagery over several cycles of a gallery show run.

The Moment

The silhouette generated by the gallery show auto-masking worked out really well in this image.

Overlay Parts1

Experimenting with auto-masking and self-randomizing vectorizer effects in gallery show to build up generative overlay imagery.

Screen grab during some gallery show randomized vectorizer technique testing.

Monday, February 2, 2015


Grabbed both of these during a gallery show run using an auto-randomizing vectorizer technique.

Two different takes on abstraction via vector bubble ellipses.

Reminded me of a reporter sitting in a news room. Or maybe a hard boiled detective working on the case. Directed auto-mutation of a paint preset while working with gallery show to make it use a randomized dynamic brush regionization setting.
