In this piece, as the particles collide they transfer bitmap data from a picture of my daughter to another bitmapdata object.
When I look closely, I'm reminded of pointillism --not so much in the color theory, but in the little points.

The speaker list is amazing! Ben Fry, Yugo Nakamura, and so many other bright lights! It humbles me, to see my own name in that company. It's also inspiring me, pushing me to explore the edges of my creativity and to expand those edges. I may even include some music.
Particles. They come in all sizes and shapes. They aggregate into complex structures. We ourselves are made of them, even as we exist as particles in a larger system. Particles can form simple swarms with simple behaviours. They can exist in a complex system with simple rules, generating complex behaviours. They can be active individuals and steadfast obstacles. They can wear disguises, and trick us into thinking they are something else.Time: 10:00am
Ever exploring the intersection of art and science, Kristin Henry lives in both worlds. In this session, Kristin will share her experiments with particles, graphs and the ideas behind them, including generative art inspired by chemistry and artistic rendering of the ip-addresses of spammers.
