Title: 2006 Rockefeller New Media Foundation Proposal
Authors: Simon, John F. Jr.
Keywords: software art
3D graphics
satellite imagery
Issue Date: 2-Jun-2009
Abstract: My project is to create a library of original software tools that will be the foundation for future software artworks. In order to keep up with the overwhelming expansion in computer hardware and software, I need a library of code tools that will serve as the basis for my art appliances and interactive book projects. I am looking for funding that will give me time to step back and evaluate all the new game engines, 3D graphics cards and languages (like nVidia's GPU), the new openGL 2.0 standards, and Apple's new development environment for Intel chips. With this information I plan to write a library of tools that takes advantage of newer technologies and expands my existing work in emergence and system simulations. This retooling project is necessary because of the large changes to computer technology in the past six years.
