TULP inspiration

Tumblr -> Pinterest

Dear follower or reader,

I started using Pinterest instead of Tumblr to collect the images that inspire me. Although Tumblr has worked very well for me, I now think that Pinterest is a better match for what I want to achieve.

So, thank you again for following my Tumblr blog. Please visit, and follow my Pinterest boards now:


Thank you!

Microscopix | CreativeJS -

Microscopix was the winning demo entry at the TRSAC 2012 demo party held in Arhus, Denmark at the end of October 2012. Created by the recently re-formed group Litewerx  it’s a lovely combination of WebGL powered visuals smoothly synced to an ambient soundtrack. The scenes flow from what look like DNA strands, to blood cells to beautifully lit organisms, all supporting the ‘microscopic’ name. It’s short but well sequenced and relaxing to watch.

The demo launcher allows you to configure how you watch it, but it still needs a relatively decent spec machine to run. And as is usual for demos you really need to use Chrome or Firefox for performance.

That’s the question University of Arizona professor Sudha Ram set out to answer in a recent study of a dozen major news organizations that use the social media website as one tool for sharing their content.

Audio Room | Aerotwist -

I didn’t have one. Not really. Like most of my demos I start out with some notion of what I want, or if something inspires me it’ll spark some idea. In this case I was watching through Robert Hodgin’s EYEO talk and the demos he did. I ended up wanting to recreate the Cornell box that he had, though in WebGL rather than OpenGL, but beyond that I didn’t have much else. But then microphone access landed in Chrome Canary…
