i like to make computer generated visual effects. this includes still
images, animation, realtime screen hacks, eye candy, visual muzak,
digital video feedback, mathematical visualization, algorithmic
collage, etc. In general i work by writing programs and creating
their datafiles; the final pixels are always produced automatically.
Still jpeg images, mpeg animation, and source code are all available
on the web at my online gallery
http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~spot/images.html. If you haven't seen the
pictures yet, don't bother reading this.
These sections describe the programs i've written and how they work:
