My soul is open source

soulmini.pngMy soul, or rather an applet of it, can be seen here.

The origin was an art project from Information is Beautiful, where the blog asked for crowdsourced artworks depicting the originators' souls. Since I believe my core processes are self-organizing emergent phenomena I decided to make a flocking system, where words taken from this blog swim around forming temporary clusters. I based it on Daniel Shiffman's Processing example, adding mostly colour management.

It might be nothing more than animated personalised fridge magnet words, but I find it relaxing to watch.
