"Thus, the work is at the same time a study on population dynamics, or on the emergent behavior of a multitude of very simple autonomous agents.

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."

My first search had "to [sic] few results."
My second search made me wait ten minutes to load my dream. I want to dream now.

Also, you should have warned that this required Flash and Java.

Lovely. Some people have a slightly different idea about 'foxes' than I have.

I typed "dreams" and the imagery drifted toward an image from "What Dreams May Come" that I had worked on. Spooky until I realized there is a web search component.

neat

is there any way to make this full-screen?

Entering the names of celebrities can be quite fun. Normally in MY dreams, though, famous people are much less fuzzy and much more willing to hang out with me.

I typed in 'handjobs' and all I got was a mess on my screen.

That was neat. I chose 'theater' 'stage' and 'actors' and got quite lovely results.

Fuzzy morphing. Yep, just like my dreams. Thanks for that, Tigomer.

Cool. Once you provided the form with keywords that don't return too few results.

Interesting. I was first waiting for the devil (or whatever) to leap out at me, but then it really did draw a "chaffinch" which led me to believe that there was something deeper going on... As an interface to Google Images, it's not the most useful thing in the world, but it sure as heck is attractive...

Trippy.

I typed in "drugs" and got a message: "Say no to drugs"

Whatever you do, don't type 'turdblossom'

I saw boobies woo hoo!!

I typed "goatse." Very pretty results! (Evidently the SafeSearch is "off" for this thing.)

Gnomes brought up some nice imagery. I also liked the keywords orange and rainbow.

Um, is the Java element done with Processing? The aesthetic is lovely.

I hit a brick wall with "brick wall" :-(

Autofellatio has too few results. Just saying. You know.

I fell asleep watching the little ball go back and forth. Dreamt about a green age.

It's versimilitude, Plutor - REM sleep usually takes about 90 minutes to kick in.

Interesting project, thanks. From the searches I tried, it's quite craftily well-balanced in terms of mixing the explicit with the implicit in terms of shapes, so that users can project enough of our own interpretations of the scenes onto them to make them meaningful in a dreamlike way.

Last night I dreamed I was aboout to (reluctantly) go through an operation in which my bottom teeth and top teeth were to be reversed, so I could better play some kind of musical instrument.

Some people think that listening to others relate their dreams is incredibly boring. I, like, so disagree.

And yeah, this site is pretty fun.

well everything I tried had "to (sic) few results". Surprisingly sex had too few results. Who knew human beings had so little to say about sex. Then I tried one of the above suggestions and then it would take forever. If I switched to another window when I went back it was back to the front screen. I just wanted to see it work once.

I'm getting that as well. Perhaps all the new traffic has overwhelmed it. Damn.
