Generative Print: Voronoi's Monsters

1 of 1 of Monsters Mashing

It’s Spooky Season so for October the Generative Print is called… Voronoi's Monsters. The algorithm creates a Voronoi Diagram and then for each cell chooses one of several Halloween items to place in it. The Halloween items are a collection of SVGs that I bought off of Etsy.

As always each print is one of a kind and there is an another aspect that makes these special. The emptiness. I wanted to send everyone a fun little activity to do this month. Please grab a crayon and have fun coloring! Also, send me your finished postcards so I can showoff your mad skills!

This Month’s Stamp

From the USPS website:

Merging traditional artwork with modern design touches, this stamp depicts one of many stories about Raven, a figure of great significance to the Indigenous people of the northern Northwest Coast, part of the area that ranges from Southeast Alaska through coastal British Columbia and south into Washington state.

Piping Workflows, Or Outputs to Inputs and Back

I gave a small lecture/talk 2 weeks ago for ACM SIGGRAPH SPARKS’ Session on "Creative Coding: Generative / Algorithmic Art and the Exploration of Authorship and Authenticity". Browse the slides if you’re interested: PDF Slides and below is the description:

In UNIX piping allows for the output from one program to be used as the input for another. Using this framework we can explore Generative Art not just as an output but as system of inputs situated within larger artistic workflows.
