Winter Revelation: Lucid Dreamscape of the Week! The winter sun hangs low. It’s a somber season on any planet. We match our time to the frozen flow. The stillness and the quiet are a prelude to transformation. Designed and performed in real-time in my own game engine. Increased the crystal count for render. I composed the music to match the
Christmas World in 360: Lucid Dreamscape of the Week! Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year! I’ve had such joy designing and performing this little world for you! This is another animated “speed painting”, in which I draw the world as I fly around it and explore it. I’ve choreographed this performance with my mix of music “Silent Night” —
A tip of the hat to Ken Jacobs for the technique!
Fractal Christmas Tree 360: Lucid Dreamscape of the Week! I enjoy the lights and decorations that we erect to fend off the dark and the cold! I also enjoy the branching of pines and the ringing of bells! Enjoy this time of year and be merry with everyone you meet! I created and performed this sketch in my real-time system.
Harvest Spirits 360: Lucid Dreamscape of the Week! A herd of Harvest Spirit animals makes its annual pilgrimage through a magical forest, sharing gifts of bounty along the way. I could watch these creatures run for hours… and I have! I created and performed this in my real-time system. I choreographed the movement to my own music, a re-imagining of
Happy Halloween! Lucid Dreamscape of the Week! Live world creation! Join me as I create a 3D Halloween World inside a Jack-o-Lantern! This is a brief excerpt from a show I perform live. You can see my sparkly cursor moving around as I carve the pumpkin, draw the landscape, grow spooky trees, grow corn from candy, and puppet a ghostly
Fluorite Farm: Lucid Dreamscape of the Week! A landscape that rolls with waves growing a crop of shifting cubic crystals, like fluorite or pyrite. This idea evolved from the plan to demonstrate a landscape that shifts and changes. The overall scenario emerged from that. It’s an example of my process that does not include a verbal script or a storyboard.
Fantasy in 360: Instant World #937 Lucid Dreamscape of the week! Infinity can fit into small places. There is no limit to how small or deep or detailed we can get. Each choice is another dimension to explore. In this sketch, I’m demonstrating some techniques I’ve invented to create a little world within a arabesque sphere. I’m drawing the matrix,
For this week’s 360 video sketch, I’m demonstrating some hand-crafted artisanal fractals! I sculpted, designed, and performed this world in real-time, set to my original music. I’m drawing the trees in the performance while I fly through the world. The trees grow generatively with the duplication of each gestural stroke.
A graphic world for this week’s 360 video sketch. I sculpted, designed, and performed this world in real-time, set to my original music. The graphic inspiration was Pepperland from “The Yellow Submarine”, which still looks fresh 50 years later. The music is my cover of “The Mexican” by the prog-rock band Babe Ruth. The original 1972 track had that groovy guitar
My 360 sketch of the week is a field of strawberries with creatures above and below. I had the strawberry stalks before I though to use one of my favorite Beatles songs, “Strawberry Fields Forever”. I quickly made this musical rendition for this movie, which I designed and performed in real-time.
My 360 video sketch for the week ending 4/16/2017 (though completed a day later!) Moths congregate in a secret valley under a full moon to share in the escapades of dancing flowers. Designed, performed, and rendered in my real-time system, with my original music.
