The XenoEntities Network (XEN) is very happy to present a program dedicated to the work of Chris Korda, an is an inventor, artist, musician, and cult leader, whose projects include virtual pottery, an AI-enhanced musical instrument (ChordEase), a polymeter music sequencer, and specialized VJ software.
In this program, curated by Pedro Marum and Wanda Gaimes, they invite Korda to present his work in a double program.
PotterDraw is a free, open-source 3D software application for designing and visualizing pottery in full color. It can be combined with a 3D printer to make physical pottery, or used to create digital art and shape-morphing animations. The pot's outer wall is drawn using a spline editor. Trigonometric effects can be applied to both the mesh and the texture, and the effects can be modulated in real time using low-frequency oscillators similar to those found in music synthesizers. I'll show favorites from my collection of virtual pottery, and then demo the software and try to explain what its many effects do. Reactive texture mapping!
