Been a while, no? Oh well. I won’t apologize.
Here’s a thing, though. I’ve been arty-ing around, you see.
This little work is an experiment with kinetic art, the difference being that my medium is code and the frame is your monitor. It’s 1620 x 1000 pixels. Six minute loop.
Screencaps, you want? Here’s one:
I set the palette to be harmonious, as you can see. (I left the swatches visible in the first screencap.)
I was in a blue frame of mind, though not really in the emotional sense. I just like blue.
The type is a mix of Helvetica on the borders, with a hand-traced inner message in 1.62 in the main frame.
1.62 is a typeface I’m playing with. You don’t have it, because I haven’t begun distributing it yet. I’m still messing with the possibilities.
Helvetica is a typeface I’m kind of stuck with, at least for now, because it’s the least self-aggrandizing sans in the standard browser arsenal.
As time goes on and I keep working on these kinds of projects, I’ll be better able to set my own typefaces.
The development environment is Hype by Tumult. It generates HTML5 and CSS3 animations and such. It’s like Flash, except (1) it doesn’t use a plugin; and (2) it doesn’t suck.
What’s six minutes of your time?
