Aleph Null is a new online work of interactive generative visual art
by Jim Andrews. Written in JavaScript. Uses the new HTML 5 canvas tag. Best viewed by the light of a full moon.
There's also a slideshow of screenshots ( http://vispo.com/aleph/jim ) to give you a sense of what it can look like in full flight. Aleph Null is color music. No audio.
It takes practice to tease the really good stuff out of it. It's like an instrument that way. Or a game in which the goal is to experience color music and create visuals you like. It's like hunting the Snark, beauty or butterflies. Unlike most instruments, Aleph Null will play something whether a person is playing or not. But it benefits immensely by a human player. It knoweth not beauty, is but the instrument of thine own incandesence.
