Jdrown – Looking Outward 2: Generative Type

Here is my Looking Outward for generative art.

I’m really interested in sound-based interfaces, and this is no exception. The on-screen printing is based on the sound produced by the computer, and the type weight is based off how heavy or light (read: textured) the sound is. There are a bunch of these on this guy’s YouTube page, and they all seem to have some sort of sound component. Looking forward, I think it would be really interesting if there were some kinda live version – like the real sounds of a place or an audience affected this drawing. Perhaps instead of a program, we had a laser cutter, who knows.
