ART MACHINES

Below are a group of interactive artBots
that will generate a wide variety of images.
For the most part, they're drawing / painting programs
that produce pictures with underlying constraints.
Some of these apps are featured on the
National Gallery of Art website . . .

MOBILE
Another spin on the machine.
View it from the top, set trails on and
you've got a multi wheeled spirograph . . .

FLOW.3
The program remembers your gestures as you draw
and plays back a movie with lots of options . . .

pRES.4
Paint infinite Georges with a choice
of brushes, styles, detail and assorted tricks . . .
 
  Each of these small applications
needs a free Shockwave plug-in.
 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

SHOCKWAVE INFO
 

It's free! If you don't have Shockwave, you'll NEED it to use these programs. Without it, the screens will come up blank - but it won't hurt your computer.

Shockwave, by MacroMedia, is a free plug-in that you can download and install in your browser plug-in folder.

Click "Get Shockwave" to take you to MacroMedia's website where you can begin the download process. Depending on the speed of your browser, this may take awhile. After the download is complete, you'll have to quit your broswer to install Shockwave. This is a cool tool that will enable you to look at some other great places on the web - in addition to this one. Complete installation instructions are at the MacroMedia site.

(Some earlier browsers may not be able to use this plug-in, but give it a try anyway)
