Generative Art Summit Berlin

This overview of Computer Animation will trace its development from the analog techniques involving oscilloscopes and video synthesizers through to the most sophisticated, digitally-rendered scenes. The program will include such classics of computer art as “Sunstone“ (1979) by Ed Emshwiller and “Particle Dreams“ (1988) by Karl Sims.  Some films on the program demonstrate technical breakthroughs, like Peter Foldes’ “Metadata”(1971), the first film to use “morphing“ animation, and Loren Carpenter’s “Vol Libre”(1980), the first time fractal geometry was used to render a landscape. Realtime vector animation will be seen in Herbert W. Franke‘s “Rotationen“ (1974) and Larry Cuba‘s “3/78“ (1978). Demonstration videos by the inventors of some of the computer systems will be shown with a special section on motion control that will answer the question, “What is SlitScan and how does it work?“
