This short computer animation is an experimental progression of abstract textures and colors created using an interactive process of "artificial evolution." The artist and computer collaborate to produce images and movements that neither could easily produce alone. The computer generates and displays a collection of experimental abstract images. The artist chooses the most aesthetically interesting images, and those survive and are "bred" to produce a new collection of...

This short computer animation from 1988 contains a collection of dream sequences created using 3D particle systems techniques. Behavior rules are applied to thousands of individual particles to model complex phenomena such as an explosion, a snowstorm, a tumultuous head, and a waterfall. A Connection Machine CM-2 computer was used to perform physical simulations on thousands of particles simultaneously, one processor for each particle.

Panspermia is the name for the theory that life exists and is distributed throughout the universe in the form of germs or spores. This short computer animation places the viewer in the middle of a virtual world of an aggressively reproducing inter-galactic life form, and depicts a single life cycle of this unusual self propagating system. Original software was used to create and animate forests of 3D plant structures. "Artificial evolution" techniques were used to interactively select...

This narrated computer animation shows results from a research project involving simulated Darwinian evolutions of virtual block creatures. A population of several hundred creatures is created within a supercomputer, and each creature is tested for their ability to perform a given task, such the ability to swim in a simulated water environment. The successful survive, and their virtual genes containing coded instructions for their growth, are copied, combined, and mutated to make offspring for...

Perestroika (pur es troiku) was created as a form of representing a sudden change. Though its Russian political ties are evident, ôperestroikaö, meaning restructuring, is to be taken in the more literal sense of the word. It is rather an individualÆs realization to change what he once believed to be something else. Aided by his aboriginal self, his actions threaten to throw the balance off current reality.

This video presents the system described in the Siggraph 01 paper by the same name. We attempt to capture the sight, touch, and feeling of the artistic painting process by providing the traditional tools of a painter. This allows anyone to control a virtual brush as he or she would a real brush. To achieve this, we have designed a physically-based, deformable, 3D brush model and bi-directional, two-layer, paint model. These allow the user to produce complex brush strokes intuitively.

Translucent materials, such as marble, milk and skin have a soft and smooth appearance that cannot be simulated with standard lighting models.

It is a fairy tale based on my grandmother's experience of surviving World War II. At that time, Japan occupied Korea. She remembers that she had to learn the Japanese language and culture and she even had to use a Japanese name.
