nearest neighbors and midpoints from Matthew Conroy on Vimeo.

Another 2D continuous automata video.

Each pixel has a value between 0 and 1. At each iteration, each pixel's value is replaced by a value given by a function of the values of the 8 adjacent pixels, sorted so that the result is non-directional.

10 particles move linearly at constant, random speeds, bouncing off the frame edges. For each pixel, calculate the Lp distance from the pixel to each particle, where p varies smoothly and monotonically from 1 at the start of the video to 10 at the end. Order this set of distances: d0, d1, d2, ... . Calculate the differences d1-d0, d2-d1, etc. Color the pixel a gray which is an increasing function of the smallest difference.

Made with Processing (processing.org).

distance function: Lp distance, variable p, minimal difference from ordered set of distances from Matthew Conroy on Vimeo.

180 particles move linearly at various constant speeds, in randomly chosen directions. For each pixel, determine the set of distances from the pixel to each particle. Sort this set: say the result is d0,d1,d2,... in order. Then let k=(d2-d1)-(d1-d0). Color the pixel based on an increasing function of k.

distance function: L1 distance, difference between shortest two distances from Matthew Conroy on Vimeo.

New distance function video.

Thirty particles move linearly at various constant speeds, in randomly chosen directions. For each pixel, determine the set of distances from the pixel to each particle. Sort this set. Find the smallest distance in that set which is greater than the sum of the two smallest distances. Color the pixel a grey color determined by a non-decreasing function of distance.

This is track #2 for my RPM 2013 Challenge sound pieces.

It comes with a video, created at the same time.

Headphones are recommended.

Ten balls move linearly at various constant speeds, bouncing off the sides. Every triangle formed by these balls is drawn, the color determined by how equilateral the triangle is (redder = more equilateral). A sound event is generated for each triangle, twice per frame, determined by the size, location and equilaterality (?) of the triangle.

Made with Csound (audio) and processing (video).
