A close look at Brian Eno and Eyegasm

April 16, 2010 · Posted in Uncategorized 

This video, by Glenn Marshall, is created by an iPad running Marshall’s new app, Eyegasm, paired with Brian Eno’s Apollo soundtrack.

Eyegasm takes a generative approach to animation, creating ambient visuals.

The video is direct output from the iPad’s HD screen, which generates the animation in real-time at 1024 x 768.

My new app ‘Eyegasm’ is now available for iPad on the App Store.

It’s essentially a version of Zio, but without the menus and configurability options (p.s. you can still run Zio in ‘upscaled’ mode on the iPad too of course).

Eyegasm however is HD – and takes full advantage of the hi res screen on the iPad.

Here’s the app description:-

“From award winning digital artist Glenn Marshall, Eyegasm is based on his critically acclaimed ‘Zio’ iPhone application. Eyegasm functions much like a lava lamp, or an aquarium – add a soothing, animated visual experience to your room, heart and mind. Beautiful, endlessly generating organic visuals take full advantage of the iPad’s amazing screen resolution and graphical capabilities. Use pinch and touch gestures to freely move, zoom and rotate. Or just sit and watch. Peace.”
