Krilin v1.3

=======[*] What is Generative Art ? :
Refers to art that in whole or in part has been created with the use of an autonomous system.
An autonomous system in this context is generally one that is non-human and can independently determine features of an artwork that would otherwise require decisions made directly by the artist.
In some cases the human creator may claim that the generative system represents their own artistic idea, and in others that the system takes on the role of the creator.
“Generative art” often refers to algorithmic art (algorithmically determined computer generated artwork) and synthetic media (general term for any algorithmically-generated media), but artists can also make it using systems of chemistry, biology, mechanics and robotics, smart materials, manual randomization, mathematics, data mapping, symmetry, tiling, and more

=======[*] Krilin Description :
An interactive tool that allows you to “play” with various generative algorithms with the purpose of creating out the box art. “Play” refers to directly modify some important parameters of the algorithm itself.

=======[*] Krilin Interface :
It is design to have a retro-feeling similar to old tools like Turbo Pascal but at the same time very simple to use. The user opens the program and then he/she uses the keyboard in order to give commands to Krilin which does everything else. Here the user can focus on experimenting with the algorithm by changing colors, and other parameters.

=======[*] What is a Moiré pattern ? :
Are large-scale interference patterns that can be produced when an opaque ruled pattern with transparent gaps is overlaid on another similar pattern. For the moiré interference pattern to appear, the two patterns must not be completely identical, but rather displaced, rotated, or have slightly different pitch.

=======[*] What is Blending mode ? :
Krilin is using two blending modes that are used by the algorithms, these are difference blending mode and exclusion blending mode. In difference blending mode each pixel color is subtracted from the screen. In exclusion blending mode the operation is the same as difference but less extreme.

=======[*] Krilin Algorithms :
In version 1.3 Krilin has 3 algorithms which are all complex Moiré patterns.

=======[*] :Algorithms Description:
1) Moire1 -> It is the simplest algorithm made from a superimposed two layer grid structure based on classical abstract geometric shapes like squares and circles. The algorithm moves the two layers which are one on top of the other in a random fashion creating complex Moiré patterns. This effect is enhance by using a difference blending mode between the two layers.
2) Boran-Moire1 -> It is an algorithm which is using external art-images for creating complex Moiré patterns. These art-images are symmetrical hand made ASCII/ANSI art custom made by the artist outside Krilin. The algorithm creates a superimposed two layer grid structure based on those art-images, then the two layers are moved randomly and enhance by using an exclusive blending mode. This creates a unique ASCII/ANSI based Moiré pattern. This algorithm is used in conjunction with the idea of modding. Where modding in this case refere to the ability to change the algorithm externally outside Krilin by modifiying the art-images themself. The interesting part is that this art-images can be in fact anything (even saved art from Krilin).
3) AlienGlyphs -> It is an algorithm which is using the concept of micro/macro grid structure. The idea here is that each element
from the grid is another smaller grid where you have various abstract classical shapes like triangle, squares and circles. The two layer
grid are different from one another because the size of the two layers are different. The algorithm performe a random movement of this
two layers creating a very complex Moiré pattern that exibit mosaic feeling. Here the two layers are blended together using a difference blending mode.

=======[*] :Interactive possibility with Krilin :
Krilin supports two import parameters that can change during the algorithm execution. These are “color parameter” and “Boran-Jade” operator.
Color Parameter -> The color parameter creates a random pale color palette that can change the visual colors of the art. This is an aesthetic parameter.
the colors are chosen randomly based on the Boran-Jade parameter.
Boran-Jade operator -> This parameter is an internal algorithmic parameter which is changing the distance of each element in the grid layers. By increasing the parameter value the grid is contracted creating a higher density which increase the complexity of the corresponding Moiré pattern. If the parameter is decrease the grid layers are decontracted creating a smaller density which decrease the complexity of the corresponding Moiré pattern. Also this parameter can be randomized to create a fuzzy distance with variable density, where the effect is an unknown complexity of the Moiré pattern.
