I created a series of abstract art pieces using openframeworks and oil painting!
This was made with my first prototype to make programming more physical and expressive. Trying to use drawing and algorithmic logic in the same context.
I feed in live captures of oil paintings which i then use as source data to run particle simulations with. These use a variation of the boids algorithm made to read colour from an image. Code is here.
I modified OF to be a .dll with dynamic code loading functionality to allow for a fast enough feedback loop necessary to paint and code in the same session - I dev on Windows using VS 2017 so this was tough to figure out
I’d love to know your thoughts about the pieces or anything I have mentioned!
Hope you enjoy it
