Colorspace is a tribute to creating on the computer. An animated painting with programed brushes, erasers, and accents. Based on the gestures of classic screensavers and operating system UI elements.

I was inspired by the file size limits of storing on Ethereum. Cutting edge technology meets a floppy disc. It reminded me of my original software tools: MacPaint, Kid Pix, HyperCard, on a black and white Mac Classic II. Colliding with a decked out gaming computer, running an arsenal of software, in millions of colors.

I hope Colorspace evokes the fun of learning new software, the trance like state of a late night coding session, and the anxiety of a HDD failure at a critical deadline.

artist display notes
### Performance ###     This animation is frame rate dependent and it should run excellent on any recent computer or smartphone. If your computer has an integrated GPU and a dedicated GPU, make sure your browser is using the dGPU. If you are using a gaming monitor (high refresh rate) the piece may run extra fast. ### Display ###     I hope you will view this piece as a generative video artwork. You could display on a laptop like a screensaver, or on a TV screen installed in portrait orientation. It looks great on a smartphone too.
