Long understood as a way to express emotion, the color applet created an abstract image as the user drew.
Line And Story
This applet used line only, as it the most common visual story telling method. Each mark created a series of interconnecting lines on the screen.
Designed to encourage users to identify their own resources in meditative activities, users controlled a variety of factors to create mesmerizing moving mandalas.
Two years after the successful launch of the Abaton project we expanded it’s use to workshops outside of the screen. Users printed their creations and continued to develop them using encaustic.
Abaton was also featured at the NonFictioNow conference as an example of Generative Art’s storytelling power.
