Krazydad hits NYC

Monday, April 23rd, 2007

I had great fun presenting at the Gel (Good Experience Live) 2007 conference in NYC. My interactive Whitney Music Box (in which the crowd made noises while host Mark Hurst controlled them with a knob) worked quite well. The audience of about 400 was game, and enthusiastically yelled “PI!” (or maybe “PIE!”) when their assigned […]

Kaleidoscope #842

Monday, April 16th, 2007

A Flash-8 kaleidoscope I’ve been making today. Click to play with it (requires the Flash 8 plug-in). The raster graphics added in Flash 8 enable larger and better performance kaleidoscopic effects than in prior versions.

Fibonacci Logos

Monday, April 2nd, 2007

Here’s my latest Quartz Composer screensaver for the Mac. This combines the fibonacci spiral seen in a lot of my graphic images with the harmonic motions from my Whitney Music Box. The motion in this screensaver is actually quite simple — if you look at each disc, you’ll see that it is just sitting in […]
