Description

sub_scape is a real-time generative system for manipulating data streams. The software is extremely robust and will generate hours and hours of varied material by sampling, folding and remapping one data set onto another. Using elegant rules, sub_scape generates poetic ecologies of sound and image. The data sets can comprise data streams of video and audio, openGL data, and alphanumerical data - eg company reports, statistics, poems, seafloor height. What emerge from the system are aesthetic complexes and evolving patterns, along with anomalies, turbulence and recursive effects. The system exhibits confluence, paradox, metaphor and commentary, arising from the intriguing combinations of source data and formal strategies. Source of Description
