About Art Blocks
Liquid Ruminations is an algorithm inspired by the contemplative effect of moving water.
Unique invocations of this algorithm consist of any number of several core components including waves that rise and fall, a flow field powered mist, and droplet shapes arranged in a dancing field that are distorted in a rhythmic, sometimes stormy animation.
These effects are combined and brought to life with mathematical wave functions in order to create movement that is ideally conducive to a meditative state. Viewers are encouraged to take the opportunity to reflect on precious things that we tend to take for granted, primarily easy access to clean water.
The outputs of this algorithm are interactive:
You may toggle a "Liquify" mode on and off by double-clicking the invocations.
Spacebar pauses the animation.
's' key saves a local screenshot.
'r' key reloads the piece.
