Anemophilous Formula for Computer Art, Owen Mundy/Joelle Dietrick (US)
Inspired by Jim Campbell’s Formula for Computer Art and Tallahassee’s recent sea of tree pollen, Owen Mundy and Joelle Dietrick created a short flash animation referencing new forms of cross-pollination and re-use. Made to be meditative and aesthetically pleasing, the format parodies recent computer art that simply crunches data to create useless forms. The diligently recorded data of the National Allergy Board guides the animation down a predictable path and stands in stark contrast to the chaos of everyday life.
The piece made with Flash, and uses ActionScript to interpret actual pollen data (American Academy of Allergy Asthma & Immunology) during March, 2007. The ambient soundtrack was recorded in a neighborhood in Tallahassee, Florida, where Joelle and I run.
