La Linear is a simple drawing application that produces image “topographies” in real-time. Like wind that blows over an empty surface, an image is revealed step by step by hundreds of simultaneously moving lines. Depending on the given image contours, waveforms and swirls combine into an abstract picture. It is a graphical tool with a strong improvisational and explorative touch, that allows the user to playfully manipulate, transform and interweave images. La Linear works as a generative real-time application that processes different sources simultaneously and allows for a wide range of choices to select motives and create images.
