words in pictures based on search

guess the google

After creating Montage-a-google, several people wrote to me suggesting I make a game based on the same technology. Montage-a-google is a simple web app that uses Google's image search to generate a large gridded montage of images based on keywords (search terms) entered by the user. Guess-the-google reverses this process by picking the keywords for you, the player must then guess what keyword made up the image - it's surprisingly addictive.

tom thumb - a generative movie

tom thumb is a short film (3 minutes) which I created in my spare time during june 2002

at the time, I was experimenting with ways of using my background in computer games and realtime graphics in unusual ways.

as a result, I decided to create a "generative film".

the film is generative in the sense that each time it is rendered by the computer, many of the details are changed. generative work with computers throws up interesting questions about free will, and where the work of the artist ends and the job of randomisation begins.

Christophe Bruno - generative works

A glimpse beyond search engines, text published in the Read_Me Book (Read_Me 2004 Software Art Festival, Aarhus, Denmark. Curated by A. Shulgin, O. Goriunova, S. Pold & al.)

"Verb thou art, and unto verb shalt thou return"

In the present paper, I describe briefly some projects (that do not exist as yet) which one can see either as possible utilitarian global structures or as art-fiction pieces subverting these structures.

Mimetics research

Richard Brown has a BSc in Computers & Cybernetics and an MA in Fine Art and creates interactive artworks using multi-media technology, computer programming, electronics and interfacing.

This website illustrates interactive artworks I have created over the last seven years.

The works represent the results of an enquiry into the nature of mind and consciousness, concerning concepts of space, time and energy.
