Kevin Atkinson: Method Art

Kevin Atkinson has been slowly building up a code library from experiments like those found on his Method Art blog, turning tinkering into what he hopes will become a full-blown set of plugins. Most of his video-based work is intended to run in real-time at web-cam resolutions, but I’d love to see this stuff in HD, even if it meant losing the interactive aspect.

What’s inspiring is that Kevin is doing all this in his spare time. He works full-time at a computer vision software company in Canada, but he obviously knows how to take those raw skills and spin them into gold. I can’t wait to see what he works on next.

Give yourself a few minutes to spin through his blog. It’s not for everyone, but if you’re into programmatic visuals at all, you’ll get a kick out of it.

wow. i’m all about this realtime processing stuff…
seems like theres some type of underground renaissance movement starting to build up behind it…

i do fear for the psychedelic drug industry however. this could mark the begining of a recession.


I just bought a Canon HV20, which shoots HD, so I’ll be posting some hires versions of the effects in the next couple weeks.
