Procedural Art

Creative work has great synergy with other aspects of the lab.

Programming isn't just dry technical ideas and number crunching. It is a deeply creative activity. Thus in practical research it is important to explore how the creative process and pratical programming techniques fit together.

On the other hand, tools that help the lab more easily produce videos that look and feel good make the lab more efficient at it's goal of outputting practically usable ideas.

What starts off as an isolated creative experiment goes on to interact with all sorts of projects at the lab. For example the video podcast and some of the visual effects used in videos like "Upgrades 2023" are rendered using the code and ideas developed in these experiments.
