One Great Big Blur

Autogenerative software wizard Ade Ward has created stand-alone Macintosh software that continuously reads and visually blends every file on your hard drive. He calls it 'Portrait of Netochka Nezvanova' in homage of the cult programmer of Nato.0+55 fame. Running Ward's software feels a bit like using Mark Napier's 'Riot' browser, except the results are continuously and speedily collaged -- more like a film than a static page. There's even an advanced version that lets you focus the churn on a specific folder. Select your digital art folder and watch your life's work flash before your eyes. - Curt Cloninger
