"Even if someone makes something terrible—like the music the Insane Clown Posse makes—at least they’re doing something that speaks to them. And they kept going even though people told them it was terrible. And they found their audience, and now they built a community around their work. Look, you couldn’t pay me to listen to their music, but I still feel like I have more in common with the Insane Clown Posse than I do with someone who just sits on the sidelines and shits on other people’s work and who never puts themselves on the line."

Useful Processing generative art resources:
Generative art in Processing, Javascript and HTML5, the ‘lost chapter’ from the book Generative Art (excellent book apparently - might have to buy when I have $$$)
Toxiclibs library looks like it has some sweet shaders included in it as well as massive potential for computer graphic art.
 The work of Diana Lange is a great precedent for generative art centred round organic growth. Also the hosting blog butdoesitfloat seems to be an awesome general design resource.
Cool output by wlal - looks to be starting off but producing really rad stuff.



  • remembering every embarrassing thing you have ever said or done all at once sticking to you like maybugs in your hair
  • deep and physical awareness of all the things you don’t know or understand 
  • worry about things that can’t be controlled and have already come to be but stick in your mind like pins

‘The Hip-Hop Flow Chart’ by Pop Chart Lab, An Art Print Ranking Rappers by the Size of Their Vocabulary

Many of us cannot help looking because of what Susan Sontag has called “the perennial seductiveness of war.” It is a kind of rubbernecking, staring at the bloody aftermath of something that is not an act of God but of man. The effect, as Ms. Sontag pointed out in an essay in The New Yorker in 2002, is anything but certain.

“Making suffering loom larger, by globalizing it, may spur people to feel they ought to ‘care’ more,” she wrote. “It also invites them to feel that the sufferings and misfortunes are too vast, too irrevocable, too epic to be much changed by any local, political intervention.”

So now that war comes to us in real time, do we feel helpless or empowered? Do we care more, or will the ubiquity of images and information desensitize us to the point where human suffering loses meaning when it is part of a scroll that includes a video of your niece twerking? Oh, we say as our index finger navigates to the next item, another one of those.

As war becomes a more remote, mechanized activity, posts and images from the target area have significant value. When a trigger gets pulled or bombs explode, real people are often on the wrong end of it. And bearing witness to the consequences gives meaning to what we see.
