Thanks for these Curt, they're lovely.
Wife and I spent a good chunk of last night going through a small
selection and just letting them extendedly loop away in the background.
Had fun looking at the code too, simple enough to mess with, complex
enough that I don't immediately know how it's all happening:)

>> It is like a subjective journal using the browser widow and the code of the page as the journal. Not a blog with just text or a tumblr with just discrete images. The source visuals are usually found online and I modulate and animate them (that is the play/damage), but sometimes they are my own photographs. View Source on each page for audio and visual source credits. I always finish them in a few hours. If my other art projects are like tournament chess, then these playdamage screens are like speed chess.
>> Used to be my constraint was that each page be under 100K. Then 350K. Now I try to keep each page under 1000K. So it is a game of minimal maxilism. How to tease out the greatest visceral affect from the least bandwidth. The themes repeat themselves because I keep thinking about the same things I guess. Jesus? face, my wife?s face, my own face, faces and bodies and process code of other internet art people, remixing my own prior code and visuals. There was a season when I made about one per month. Then sometimes I will just make one per year. I will just keep making them until i die.
