NAMEinteraggregate - Visualize the momentary and aggregate intersections between slowly moving circles.
SYNOPSISinteraggregate [-display host:display.screen] [-foreground color] [-background color] [-num-circles disc count] [-growth-delay delayms] [-max-cycles maxr] [-percent-orbits percent] [-base-orbits percent] [-base-on-center] [-draw-centers] [-fps]
DESCRIPTIONThe Intersection Aggregate is a fun visualization defining the relationships between objects with Casey Reas, William Ngan, and Robert Hodgin. Commissioned for display at the Whitney Museum of American Art. A surface filled with 100 medium to small sized circles. Each circle has a different size and direction, but moves at the same slow rate. Display: A. The instantaneous intersections of the circles. B. The aggregate intersections of the circles. Ported to XScreensaver from the art project "InterAggregate" at //www.complexification.net by J.Tarbell
OPTIONSinteraggregate accepts the following options: -num-circles disc count (Default: 100) Number of slowly moving and growing discs to use. The more discs, the more CPU power. -growth-delay delayms (Default: 18000) Delay in ms between drawing cycles. More delay, slower (but smoother and less CPU intensive.) art. -fps Display the current frame rate and CPU load.
ENVIRONMENTDISPLAY to get the default host and display number. XENVIRONMENT to get the name of a resource file that overrides the global resources stored in the RESOURCE_MANAGER property. BUGS Setting the background to anything besides black confuses the intensity algorithm and will look terrible.
