Artificial Intelligence meets Artificial Art

Murakami meets Artificial Art


The Quote: “When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.”

This quote is from Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami. Murakami is unique among contemporary novelists insofar as he has somehow managed to remain a cult writer while selling millions of copies of his books both in his native Japan and in the many countries where his novels are now read in translation. Kafka on the Shore is powered by two remarkable characters: a teenage boy, Kafka Tamura, who runs away from home either to escape a gruesome oedipal prophecy or to search for his long missing mother and sister; and an aging simpleton called Nakata, who never recovered from a wartime affliction and now is drawn toward Kafka for reasons that, like the most basic activities of daily life, he cannot fathom. I think this book displays one of the world’s great storytellers at the peak of Murakami powers.

"Nobody has ever measured, not even poets, how much the human heart can hold. ...... it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give ... I take this quote as the starting point for a dynamic piece of algorithmic art that I try to design and implement as a Processing sketch. I researched more about what to do and how I want to express and demonstrate this quote by the processing sketch. First I tried to make it by the other media such as an artistic motion by using the Processing.
