I just have to write about this website.
I literally stumbled across ( as you do, when I was searching for some ferret stuff). It is quite spooky.
“Dreamlines is a non-linear, interactive visual experience. The user enters one or more words that define the subject of a dream he would like to dream. The system looks in the Web for images related to those words, and takes them as input to generate an ambiguous painting, in perpetual change”. Really?
I entered mainlinephoto…. and I am sure I saw Rufus.
Actually the above shot is of my mountains dream.
“The pictures are never actually shown. The drawing itself is produced by 1500 autonomous particles in perpetual movement”.
“Who is dreaming? The user, or the Internet itself? In a certain way, both. The program generates a personal moving picture, unique, unpredictable, and forever gone when it is finished, just like dreams”.
Wow how cool is that! But will they release a Nightmares version?
