Yellowtail - gestural animation
February 6, 2003 7:12 PM   Subscribe

Strangely compelling. YELLOWTAIL is an interactive software system for the gestural creation and performance of real-time abstract animation. Yellowtail repeats a user's strokes end-over-end, enabling simultaneous specification of a line's shape and quality of movement. Each line repeats according to its own period, producing an ever-changing and responsive display of lively, worm-like textures. If you like the Java version, you can download the full screen version with sound.

That was really beautiful. The full screen version is worth the download.

Very cool. Download the fullscreen / sound version, it's strangely hypnotic, too.

Beautiful. My computer doesn't have the specs to handle the full program, but the web version is great. It almost seems alive.
