Hypnotica is all about balance.
Balance between chaos and order.
Balance between noise and harmony.
Balance between sharpness and smoothness.
100% generative Hypnotica designs artworks where these two elements collide, without one prevailing on the other, like the Yin & Yang.
The algorithm will produce a maximum of 2048 Hypnotica. After the end of the sale the unsold artworks will be burned.

We think people should enjoy Hypnotica no matter what the traits are, however for the rarity snipers there are some combinations that are extremely rare and hard to get. They are not defined by a specific trait but by how the trait was interpreted by the algorithm.
RANGE & TRAITS
The range of Hypnotica is defined by the combination of the special traits. The more complicated the traits the more special the piece.
The theme defines the color of the core. Each set of colors is selected by hand to work well together. Colors blend to create a beautiful and harmonic piece in the middle of chaos.
There are 24 of them.
THE CORE RATIO
The core influences the construction grid of the artwork. Its shape can vary a lot in height and width going even to extreme ratios.
THE CORE SIZE
The core can have different sizes influencing the balance between chaos and armony of the artwork.
MODELS & LAYOUT
The artworks based on a grid generated by the lines connecting the core with the container. Obviously always in odd numbers the models can be from simple (Model 3) to complex (Model 13).
Within the same model we can have endless layouts depending on the ratio of the rows and columns and how the different sections merge.
Valentino & Robert Aka Elastico
For the first time working together on a generative project Valentino and Robert are award winning creatives, respectively an advertising creative director with a love for design and a creative developer expanding the limits of his craft.
Deeply passionate about visual experimentation Valentino is in charge of the visual direction while Robert is the mastermind of the generative code.
Hypnotica is inspired by an artwork of La Tigre but is not affiliated to the studio.
This is for NERDS only.
Hypnotica is created, developed and exported entirely using the browser. The project is entirely based on an html canvas and developed using webgl & P5js. The core is rendered offscreen in webgl using some custom shaders written in glsl.
