KYND creates watercolor paintings with computer code


kenichi yoneda creates watercolor paintings with computer code

 

 

using openFrameworks FBO to create simulations of computerized watercolor paintings, design engineer kenichi yonedi ( otherwise known as KYND) has creatively coded a series of graphic textured images for a presentation at the yamaguchi mini maker faire in japan which coincided with the 2013 openFrameworks developer conference. openGL texture(image) blending is utilized to blur and combine multiple scenes just as one do using photoshop layers, which as a result, creates a visual performance of color and pixels in a digital medium. to see more of his work, visit his vimeo page here.
