Matt Lockyer story:
Living Brushes is an install I’m working on for a class on Metacreation, being creative with creative autonomous agents.
I’ve developed a set of brushes that seed autonomous agents at the hand location. Other parameters include Torso to hand distance to increase brush size and hand velocity to increase brush speed and length.
The agents use autonomous steering behaviors but initially start out influenced by the hands themselves. Once out of range they can tend to do their own thing.
I’m still developing the brush set, but look for another demo video coming soon.
