Description :

As a painter and photographer I’ve always been interested in 2D composition.
I’ve found that relatively simple computer programs can produce compositions which are pleasing, and it only requires artistic exploration to find methods which are pleasing more often than not.
The art-generating code of my new computer art project artMachine comes from my longtime interest in algorithmic composition. The graphics are generated randomly in HTML5’s CANVAS by a program I wrote in JavaScript that also incorporates jQuery. This is part of the Light Dreams series.

Dot Space is the first version of the software that operates without mouse interaction.
Instead it is an infinite loop much like the computer art I have been making since 1980.
This composition draws several linear gradations with a random number of color stops placed at random distances from each origin point of the gratation.
At each color stop there is a random transparency, and a random color. The program is initially set to cycle every 8 seconds, creating 450 compositions an hour: a hardworking art machine.

Move your mouse to the bottom of the screen or touch the screen to access controls for fullscreen viewing, composition variations, and longer time intervals.
