ARTionscript is a ‘Generative Art’ Framework which aims to decrease the barrier to entry as well as openly share code an algorithms relating to generative art.
Conceptually there is a ‘Studio’ (Main/Document Class) which has access to ‘Artists’ (algorithms / rules). The ‘Artist’ is given a ‘Canvas’ (a glorified Sprite), can be given some ‘Inspiration’ (eg. a Flickr image / sound file) and a ‘Palette’ (eg. a Kuler colour theme).
The ‘Artist’ then creates the art work on and to the dimensions of ‘Canvas’. The resulting artwork is created using his own internal algorithms, which is influenced by the ‘Inspiration’ and painted in colours of the ‘Palette’ given to him.
