Artlandia - Software for Programmable Creative Graphic Design
Library Home || Full Table of Contents || Library Help
|A Mathematica-based application for artistic interpretation of data and creating mathematical and algorithmic art. The software provides a selection of tools for constructing geometrical objects from numerical arrays, distributing geometric shapes over the plane, and making and manipulating lattices and wallpaper patterns, as well as performing graphics operations and transformations. There are artificial intelligence algorithms for "automatic" generation of attractive patterns and utilities that keep them from looking as though they were made by a computer. The site includes a graphics gallery and display of user art. Artlandia requires Mathematica 3.0 or higher and is available for all platforms that run Mathematica. The student version can be purchased at a discount; see also Artlandia's free interactive program, Kaleidoscope.|
