This was my first animation made with the Processing language (processing.org). It's a generative art piece created entirely by the computer out of mathematics and code. (Music - Boards of Canada).
My ultimate aim was to have the computer generate spontaneous, random animation, which looked as natural and interesting as any other form of human created art. glennmarshall.wordpress.com/2008/08/07/the-zeno/
The 'Music is Math' code next became the basis of my music video for Peter Gabriel 'The Nest That Sailed The Sky' which won an Award of Distinction at Ars Electronica - vimeo.com/3245120
I then adapted the same code into a range of iPhone and iPad applications Zio, Supernova and Eyegasm - a collection of 'interactive ambient paintings' - looking at the software app as art (and reaching no.1 in iTunes charts in Australia,NZ & Europe)- glennmarshall.wordpress.com/zio/
My most popular animation on the web 'Metamorphosis' is also based on the same code, with over 350,000 plays on vimeo alone - vimeo.com/1747316
