Kind of Blue

Among artist/programmers in the world of reactive/autogenerative software, Stanza stands out as a Jedi's Jedi. His pieces not only develop gorgeously and react interestingly, but he has the painterly ability to communicate thematically in the amorphous language of abstract visuals. His 'amorphoscapes' are a meta-series of reactive Director environments, each with its own vibe. One series is warm and retro. Another series is industrial and futuristic. Each series contains multiple pieces, and each piece contains multiple variations. Kind of like a Bach fugue illustrated by Kandinsky in Lingo. - Curt Cloninger
