Digital Fordite


Playlists: '37c3-meta' videos starting here / audio

Fordite are polished bits of many layers of hardened enamel car paint. Originally, this car paint was just dumped, until some years ago, when people started to dig them out of the garbage dump, polished them and used them in jewellery. I wrote some code that simulates that process to generate pretty (2D) images and animations.

I will quickly show what actual fordite is, then show my early attempts to use the same underlying process to make pretty pictures, describe what is implemented now, show some pretty (abstract) pictures and (if possible) some animations that have been created with it.
