Binary's Forth Fugue by JK Keller


Binary's Forth Fugue is the latest conceptual project of JK Keller. An animated GIF series based on generative animations created using arrow icons which mark the different direction for each animation. Keller tells us more about this work;
"The project began as an exploration in the generative potential of found digital imagery. Using only the 122 icons labeled "arrow" from Yusuke Kamiyamane's amazing Fugue Icons set, I was able to create a set of animations similar to L-system growth models. The directional path of the arrow attempts to find a forward progression in mounting uncertainty & indecisiveness, eventually bowing to the emergent cacophony of the powers of 2. The 10 movements and variations take the viewer from a single looping path through a couple of the 24 branching choices to the eventual climax of 67'108'864 possible end points (if my math is correct). In theory, from just 24 branching choices, I could create 7'060'738'412'025 different decision-branch animations (again, if I'm correct in my maths)." See more;

Maybe Keller's Binary's Forth Fugue could reminds you of Jodi's globalmove.us, two both projects are based on generative animations using icons, but in this case, the own icons (arrows) mark the random direction of the animation.
