Unsung Heroes of Tour de France pt. 2

July 12th, 2010 · 1 Comment

Now that Tour de France 2010 is well on it’s way I’ve tweaked the app to now show this years data. Since last post I’ve also added some little tweaks to indicate the profile of each stage - most of the stages are insignificant at this size but you can clearly see the Alps (visible […]

Unsung Heroes of Tour de France

July 1st, 2010 · 1 Comment

Tour de France 2010 is about to start and I wanted to share a (work in progress) info visualisation project I’ve been working on (the data used below are the results from TDF 2009).In ‘le grande’ race, there’s a tendency to focus on the top riders, even sometimes only on the top 10-15 riders, and […]

Puckey Portrait Machine

When I first started writing generative graphics code as a student, I spent hours trying to¬†decipher¬†existing work, I wanted to understand how certain mechanics were built, simple things like attractions, avoidance, movement along a curve, simple physics… etc. The list seems endless and I have from time to time found myself back in the mindset […]

Book: Form and Code

April 13th, 2010 · No Comments

In the fall 2010 the ‘Form and Code’ book will be published, the list of contributors are pretty impressive and my collaborate project with Enrico Bravi and Paolo Palma, the ORTHO-TYPE typography software, is featured in it. Exciting.
See the full list of contributors on the book website.

tangled part III

March 30th, 2010 · No Comments

I’ve spent a bit more time with the tangled experiment. I made the switch from Processing’s built-in DXF exporter to using Nervous System’s Obj Exporter - The FBX library is good but when importing the Processing-generated geometry into Modo, each triangle is a separate entity which makes it difficult to perform any Modo-specific tasks on […]

tangled part II

Following the experiments in the previous blog post, here’s another round of renderings made using Processing to generate the shape and Modo to render the final images.

March 25th, 2010 · No Comments

This evening I found some time to experiment a bit with some Processing bits that’s been collecting dust in my sketchbook for ages: Spherical ribbons, DXF exports and rendering models in Luxology Modo. Oh my.
First I simply let the ribbons flow around the sphere with long tails….

The output seemed a bit sterile and boring so […]

Breadcrumbs and KML

March 3rd, 2010 · Comments Off

I’ve been dabbling with GPS ideas lately … hopefully I’ll have time to push one of the ideas into a real project soon. For now, here’s a screengrab of Google Earth showing my trails as I was out testing some GPS logging code last night. Using Google Earth and the KML data format is proving […]

Procrastination

January 31st, 2010 · Comments Off

I’ve been working with an amazing new client for the past couple of months - working late last night, I really ought to either a) get some sleep or b) debug my app… but, somehow I ended up writing a small processing app in eclipse using the awesome proclipsing. It’s one of those experiments that […]

Happy 2010!

January 8th, 2010 · Comments Off

The new year is now 8 days old and I’m (very) late in the season-greetings tradition… Nevertheless: Happy New Year/Decade! 2009 was amazing and 2010 already looks to be just as exciting.
I’ve thrown together a quick generative piece that has been living in my sketchbook for far too long. It is a simple particle system […]
