Sinopsis: Also featuring: Keith Peters, David Hirmes, Lifaros, Paul Prudence, Pavel Kaluzhny, Ken Jokol
Forget school math class, Flash math is about fun. it's what you do in your spare time - messing around with little ideas until the design takes over and you end up with something beautiful, bizarre, or just downright brilliant.
It's a book of iterative experiments, generative design; a book of inspiration, beautiful enough to leave on the coffee table, but addictive enough to keep by your computer and sneak out while no-one's looking so you can go back to that Flash movie that you were tinkering with 'til 3 o'clock this morning.
In New Masters of Flash the designers told us about themselves and deconstructed their finest effects. Well this time we've gathered the best in one book and simply asked them to go away and do what they do best: play. We give you the code and explain the essence, then you take your inspiration and run with it.
About the Author:
Jared Tarbell was born in 1973 to William and Suzon Davis Tarbell in the high-altitude desert city of Albuquerque, New Mexico. First introduced to personal computers in 1987, Jared's interest in computation has grown in direct proportion to the processing power of these machines. Jared holds a bachelor of science degree in computer science from New Mexico State University. He sits on the board of the Austin Museum of Digital Art, where he helps promote and encourage appreciation of the arts within the global community. Jared is most interested in the visualization of large data sets, and the emergent, lifelike properties of complex computational systems. Jared has recently returned to Albuquerque to work closer to friends and family while enjoying the unique aspects of desert living. Additional work from Jared Tarbell can be found at levitated.net and complexification.net.
Manny Tan works for a design shop called The Fin Company in New York. In his spare time, he updates his sites, www.uncontrol.com and www.66mph.com. Both deal with programmatic movement in Flash. Uncontrol is the place for Manny to experiment with motion and behaviors through code, while 66mph is where he does his more "arty-farty" stuff. Manny has been published in several books, like New Masters of Flash, 72 DPI, and Young Guns NYC III, and has exhibited works at OFFF in Barcelona and ADC in New York. He was involved in the biennial at Tirana and was exhibited at the Deitch Gallery in New York City. When he's not doing Flash stuff, Manny builds Bandai models, mountain bikes, and grows herbal plants on his windowsill.
Glen Rhodes started his mind going early in life, when he was about 4 years old. At that age, Glen began playing the piano, which was sitting unused in his family's house. He's been playing ever since. Later, in 1997, Glen co-wrote a full-length musical called Chrystanthia. Somewhere along the way, he picked up game programming as a hobby, and eventually ended up making games professionally for home console systems. Then, in 1998, Glen discovered how he could take all my experiences and combine them, when he discovered Flash. The rest is history. Glen shares his ideas on his website, GlenRhodes.com.
Keith Peters lives in the vicinity of Boston with his wife, Kazumi, and their daughter, Kristine. He has been working with Flash since 1999, and has co-authored many books for friends of ED, including Flash MX Studio, Flash MX Most Wanted, and the ground-breaking Flash Math Creativity. In 2001, he started the experimental Flash site, BIT-101 (BIT-101.com), which strives for a new, cutting edge, open-source experiment each day. The site won an award at the Flashforward 2003 Flash Film Festival in the Experimental category. In addition to the experiments on the site, there are several highly regarded Flash tutorials which have been translated into many languages and are now posted on web sites throughout the world. Keith is currently working full time doing freelance and contract Flash development and various writing projects.
Kip Parker is a resident of London, born on 31 January 1973. Having previously worked as a van driver, nanny, ice cream seller, sandwich maker and band manager, in 1997 he answered an ad that asked "Do you want to be a web designer?" Kip works through his own company, Hi-Rise, and in collaboration with Anthony Burrill as friendchip. friendchip's first commercial job was for German electronic band Kraftwerk, and has gone on to work largely with bands and music companies. Projects include ongoing work for 13amp.tv, and a new site for Bjork (littleibooks.com). As Hi-Rise, Kip works with airside on a multi-player game for 23rdfloor.com.
Connor McDonald has worked with Oracle since the early 1990s, cutting his teeth on Oracle versions 6.0.36 and 7.0.12. Over the past 11 years, Connor has worked with systems in Australia, the U.K., southeast Asia, western Europe, and the United States. He has come to realize that although the systems and methodologies around the world are very diverse, there tend to be two common themes in the development of systems running on Oracle: either to steer away from the Oracle-specific functions or to use them in a haphazard or less-than-optimal fashion. It was this observation that led to the creation of a personal hints and tips website (http://www.OracleDBA.co.uk) and more, presenting on the Oracle speaker circuit in an endeavor to improve the perception and usage of PL/SQL in the industry.
Ty Lettau is a partner at the Fourm Design Studio in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He created Fourm with JD Hooge, Craig Kroeger and Erik Natzke. Ty's personal site, Sound of Design, explores and experiments with the possibilities of interactive media. He also teaches part-time at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. Ty has created projects for Vector Lounge and Born Magazine.
Brandon Williams is a senior at Spring Woods High School in Houston, Texas, with many years of mathematics and computer science studies under his belt. His mathematics focus has been single and multivariable calculus, real analysis, linear algebra, ordinary differential equations, elementary combinatorics, and number theory. His computer science experience is based on programming design, object-oriented programming, and problem solving. His goal is to pursue a Ph.D. in mathematics. In his spare time, he helps run the math forum at Were-Here under the name of ahab, and works for Eyeland Studios as a games programmer.
