ART && CODE: ExtendScript, Dr. Woohoo

Dr. Woohoo (translation: serious fun) is a New Mexico-based artist and programmer. Woohoo sculpts the form of his generative artwork and then harnesses natural phenomena (wind, gravity, etc.) and music, through algorithms, to drive his brushstrokes and composition. With a DIY attitude, he creates his own color, paint and visual effects applications using Adobe AIR, and rather than recreate existing features and functionality, Woohoo integrates his tools with applications like Photoshop, Illustrator and Maya. Woohoo’s latest work explores the dichotomy between Population vs. Consumption from the abstract perspective of Mother Nature. For more information on Dr. Woohoo, you can find him at DrWoohoo.comor in the featured article of the March issue of Photoshop User magazine.
