ciUI: A User Interface Block for Cinder

July 5, 2012

After hearing Andrew Bell’s (@drawnline) awesome talk about feeding babies with creative code at Eyeo 2012 and talking to Alex Biem (@tangibleint) I was inspired to port ofxUI (made for Openframeworks) to Cinder. If you aren’t familiar with ofxUI, check it out here. ofxUI contains many widgets and layout methods to help place those widgets so to make user interfaces that are more aesthetically appealing, useable, clean, and minimal.

Organic SuperShapes

January 31, 2010

Recently, I have been exploring SuperShapes, which are organic shapes that are rendered by evaluating the superformula with different parameters. This formula creates some beautiful and very organic shapes that can be used in other graphics to make a dynamic graphic composition (either interactive or static). Doing this in Matlab or Mathematica is interesting, but I wanted to make something a little more interactive, minimal and fun to play with so I designed a application that can be used to create these shapes and render an image of them at a super high resolution.
