Subblue is the experimental generative art of Tom Beddard. He has some real mind-bending work in his portfolio and whenever possible shares the source-code from his interactive experiments. He is an ex-physicist and currently works as the technical director for the Scottish digital branding agency Tictoc Family, building Ruby on Rails based web applications.
I know I have seen and posted the work of Leander Herzog in the past, but I revisted his Flickr-folio today and only again realized how sprawling and truly experimental it is. Trying to just pick one image out of such a huge archive just doesn’t seem to do it all justice.
Longtime interactive design hero-rockstar Joshua Davis has updated his website after a very very long time. Most the the updating consists of his now signature Flash-generative artwork. He has been around the block and is still standing. You can trace him all the way back to the internet will save the world boom in the late nineties through today. I remember watching an interview with him in college and being excited by the collision of art and technology and the influence of that collision on the future of design.
The question is, how relevant is he now? I personally still like some of what he is doing, but I am curious to prod the audience here for a little feedback. What do you think of him and his work now? Is it still on the bleeding edge or has he been overexposed?
Field got in touch today to let me know that their ‘latest exploration in generative processes and abstract narration’ is ready for viewing. It is strange and wonderful. Generative art is a really interesting new vein in the body of art if you ask me. I love seeing the back and forth push between art and technology.

12/16 HITCHENS DIES Outspoken author and pundit Christopher Hitchens passed away yesterday at the age of 62 after succombing to a long battle with cancer. His honest and bravado opinion that rarely favored one side versus the other but was instead often a cry for ‘reason’ will be missed.
11/23 BURZYNKSI CLINIC Is there an alternative, non-toxic treatment for cancer? Dr. Stanislaw R. Burzynski seems to think so and has been experiencing higher rate of success than the current accepted practice of treating cancer.
