Generative Texture Maps for Animation (artwork and paper)
International Conference on Generative Art
An aperiodic planar tiling is employed as the initial structure for texture application. A generative process for texture metamorphosis is used to create variation producing two-dimensional art work intended for printed output. Two-dimensional animations demonstrate the process for producing new textures. Expanding from this preliminary test, rules for opacity and relative depth, scale and velocity of movement will be related the length of time a form is visible on screen and geometric form. These are demonstrated in a two-dimensional animation that uses pictorial depth cues such as atmospheric perspective, occlusion, vertical placement, and diminishing size. Modification of rules take into consideration two underlying philosophical assumptions: 1) the world is created by a benevolent "god" and 2) aesthetic criteria govern issues related to selection of visual forms that persist.
