Hello everyone, I'm Matúš Solčány, i currently study masters information design in the Netherlands. In the past time i do generative art and organize clojure+quil workshops in the uni.
I've been lurking about in the public section of Merveilles for a while now and i like the general ethos of using code for other than commercial and utilitarian purposes. Below is my latest generative work, a poster for the Quil workshop. Thanks for having me :)
Hey Merveilles, can you recommend multiplayer games that are based on non violent and non competitive collaboration?
Altough the chaotic nature of it is why i love doing it so much
I'm getting some furry results. The trickiest part of generative art for me is figuring out the rules that will bring some order to usually completely chaotic composition of a generated image

For the past few weeks i've been working on fixing my older piece of generative spaghetti code. Recently I got to the stage where i can experiment with it 🙂
i've spent the last 6 months mad about nfts. and i guess i finally got mad enough to write it all down. ->
today i found the most monads online person in existence: Anatoly Fomenko, a russian/soviet mathematician and writer of several pseudohistorical novels about how everything we think happened in the ancient world actually happened in medieval times, who makes impressive gothic art based off topography
Great research and counter-argument to the criticisms of NFT lately. By Sterling Crispin.

There's a beautiful church ruin near my place, This weekend I've been messing with Blender and a 3d scan that I've made recently
Thanks everyone for the boosts and some great artists!
boosts are welcome

some alarming climate stats

The 70 images are 250kb heavy on average at 1400x900. The landing page thumbnails are 100kb on average at 1024x601 and there's 12 of them. I'm keeping them at relatively high resolution for mobile devices.
Most of the video size comes from bad compression of .ogg, where mp4 or webm has ~5mb .ogg needs ~20mb to maintain the quality.
the 50kbs of css comes mostly from the Tachyons library, i think i could eventually get it down to ~10kb or less
The next step is to finish developing a wiki and some initial content for it
Thanks everyone for the tips! i checked them out and i like the Pattern Recognition!
