Hello everyone, I've made a little video demonstrating my visual/spatial programming tool! It's called

Spellular Automata

The artistry here is amazing, @Lu Wilson. The rhythm, in both the audio and the video, is very compelling. How did you fall onto this idea of making the demonstrations valuable art, in their own right? Do you have advice for people who aspire to be this compelling in how they demonstrate their experiments?

Thanks @Jason Morris! It's really been an iterative thing - my

first video

was quite different+basic 🙂 and with each video, I've experimented a bit more! I covered the journey a little bit in

this video

! I guess my backgrounds in performing+teaching influence my videos a little bit, among a lot of other influences! I go to quite a few trance gigs, and the v

isuals they use alongside the music

is a big influence too! (as well as the common combination of

nature+electronic music

) My advice would be: Make a lot of stuff for fun, and try one new thing each time (no more, no less)!

I sent the message too soon but I've edited it with some more things now 😄

I made a 10 minute demo video a few weeks ago, and it nearly drove me nuts. Between storyboarding, scripting, producing, editing, it took the better part of a week, and it just felt so inefficient. I think I might need a different medium, or a more compelling target. Or maybe just more practice. But I will try new things, and try to incorporate other esthetics that I value.

Yes it does tend to take a longgggg time. I feel like I go in cycles - sometimes I'm trying to be more ambitious, and sometimes I'm just trying to make the video more quickly! 💨 The only other thing I would add is that: The main thing I aim for with the demos/videos is to give the user a certain feeling, rather than give them some knowledge/information. I'm not sure if this is a good idea or not, but it's what I always focus on as goal number 1!
