Cyber Artist: Otherland 1.1 Next generation screensaver that combines beauty of paintings with the graphic capabilities of modern computers to generate infinite number of stunning images that rival most of conventional contemporary paintings.
Description: This screensaver displays 1000 instances of a single DYNAMIC picture (The demo version contains 50 pictures). The Canadian artist San Base has invented a new manner of presentation of Art objects using modern computer technology. The artist creates basic idea of the picture (plot, esthetics), basic colours, basic principles of their development. Then a computer works on the picture's individuality, adding more variations and fluctuations of the basic elements and letting them develop with time. As a result, the viewer can watch the picture living its own life with objects moving and transforming but still following the original artist's concept. Once static, the modern picture is now transformed into a never-ending show with images replacing each other hour by hour, day by day, month by month. None of the images repeat previous ones and will never repeat again. Some of the images might be considered masterpieces in their own.
