Generativity: Fluffy Chaos

Fluffy Chaos is the first book of the Generativity series.

 

It explores the spaces of generative visuals. Spaces in which the laws of nature become entangled with programming code to describe possible scenarios.

The books of the series showcase the images and the code used to produce them. (here is the code used for Fluffy Chaos)

The code can be executed using the Processing language (http://www.processing.org).

Future Learning Spaces
The notion of space regains fresh momentum every time we interact with the world around us. As mobile devices weave into the fabric of everyday life, we are no longer confined to a specific location, time and place in accessing and interacting with communications technologies. Interfaces become more adaptable and fluid according to the user’s needs; capable of switching seamlessly between augmented, real and virtual information and communication techniques and practices.

At Angel_F’s party we presented “Listen” an interactive installation featuring generative data sculptures visualizing the AI’s relationships on social networks.

Social graph data was inferred through Facebook and FriendFeed APIs and relevant data was fetched, buinding monolithic data scultpures people could interact with.

The installation is by Salvatore Iaconesi.

Made using Flex, ActionScript 3 and several server side technologies.
