Hello, and a somewhat belated happy new year! I hope 2011 has been good to you so far. I’ve been pretty busy both with official college work and personal projects, and it’s the latter I want to show today. I put together a wee compilation of some of the sketches I’ve put together recently as a “showreel” of sorts (with one eye on interviewing for university in the immediate future). Some of these aren’t really suitable for web deployment, and doing it as video lets me crank up the detail and quality. It also gives me the opportunity to make some metal to go behind it.
You can play with some of the live sketches on OpenProcessing: Mesh Typography, 3D Mesh Typography, and Kinetic Typography. I might talk about some of the sketches in a bit more detail in future, in the meantime please get in touch if you have any questions or comments.
Credit where credit’s due: as well as Processing, these pieces use the Geomerative, Traer Physics and Mesh libraries. I was inspired to make some music for it by the amazing Cloudkicker, so thanks to Jaime (@speedyjx) for flagging him up to me.
Until next time…
