dreamlines

Abstract:
Dreamlines is a non-linear, interactive visual experience. The user enters one or more words that defi ne the subject of a dream he would like to dream. The system looks into the Web for images related to those words, and takes them as input to generate an ambiguous painting, in perpetual change, where elements fuse into each another, in a process analogous to memory and free association.
