The Project

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.

MODELS & LAYOUT

The artworks are defined by the 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.

THE CORE RATIO

The most crucial part of the artworks, the core influences everything else. Its shape can vary a lot in height and width going to extreme ratios.

square
skyscraper
wide

THE CORE SIZE

The core can have different sizes influencing the balance of the artwork.

micro
small
medium
big
fat

THEMES

The theme is the second feature 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.

RARITY

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.

  • Perfectly squared core

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.
