Daily

I told my server to generate files with certain restrictions on a daily basis. This would stimulate me to study colour on a daily basis. These images turn into posters or prints. They consist of rectangles, blobs, texts, colours, gradients, and they’re sometimes blurry.

Posters

Since the end of 2013 my server generates single files with the following restrictions, one time, every day

  1. The Daily Rectangle

    The Daily Rectangle is the first work my server started generating on a daily basis. It's been doing so since the 21st of December in 2013.

  2. The Daily Blob

    I wanted to understand how cubic beziers work in SVG, and I wondered if colours behave differently on blobby forms and rectangles. Hence this daily project.

  3. The Daily Blob That Turns Into A Rectangle

    There are three things I'm investigating in this series of experiments: (1) how do colours look when they change in ten steps, (2) how do the different ratios look that Nathan Ford described in his article on A List Apart, and (3) what's the influence of a white or black border.

  4. The Daily Slice Of A Blob That Turns Into A Rectangle

    This experiment is based on the same principles as The Daily Blob That Turns Into A Rectangle, but it only shows a slice of it. It's inspired by some works by Karl Gerstner.

  5. The Daily Blurry Rectangle

    This is a first experiment to see if the effects of the different colour contrasts change if the rectangles are blurry.

  6. The Daily Blend Mode

    This is a first experiment to see what the different blend-modes look like.

  7. The Daily Hue

    This experiment takes the day of the year — today is the 204th day — and uses it as the value for the hue in a HSL colour function. The other values are random between 10 and 90.

  8. The Daily Blurry Blob That Turns Into A Rectangle

    This is a first experiment to see if the effects of the different colour contrasts change if the blobs are blurry.

  9. The Daily Blurry Slice Of A Blob That Turns Into A Rectangle

    This is a first experiment to see if the effects of the different colour contrasts change if the blobs are blurry.

  10. The Daily Random Synonym

    Every day around 13:37 a synonym is posted of yesterday’s synonym.

  11. The Daily End Of Time

    Every day a rule is added to this page that tells how long ago the world has ended. Or how long it will take for the world to end.

Daily Books

There are a few studies that generate 100 different versions ate every page refresh. They are documented in the Works section of this site. I ordered my server to generate a 100 page PDF of some of these works on a daily basis. These PDFs can be downloaded and they can be ordered as a physical book.

  1. 100 Random Rectangles

    A book with a rectangle of random size and random colour on a background of a random colour.

  2. 100 Random Blobs

    A book with a blob of random size and random colour on a background of a random colour.

  3. 100 Random Ratios

    A book with 100 random three column layouts, with random colours, and ratios based on one of the twelve excellent orthogons.

  4. 100 Random Blobs That Turn Into Rectangles

    A book with randomly shaped blobs of a random colour that morph into a rectangle of a different colour in 10 steps.

  5. 100 Slices of Random Blobs That Turn Into Rectangles

    A book with slices randomly shaped blobs of a random colour that morph into a rectangle of a different colour in 10 steps.

  6. 100 Squares with a colour pattern

    A book with rectangles on squares that uses that day of the year — today is the 204th day — to define the hue of the colours on each next page
