Raven Kwok’s Latest Video Features a Code-Generated Talib Kweli

The artist and programmer made a generative lyrics video for “Greatness” by Karma Fields, which features the rapper.

Artist/programmer Raven Kwok is a pro at creating intricately geometric data-driven artwork, and now he’s turned his talents to the lyrics video for Greatness by Karma Fields and Talib Kweli. The code-based video is made using a generative system similar to the one he used for Karma Fields’s earlier Skyline music video. Here again black and white shapes twist and evolve kaleidoscopically, but now they also take the shapes of words that, if you squint, you can just make out. "The entire lyrics video consists of multiple variations of a customized generative system programmed using Processing,” writes Kwok in the video’s description. Check it out below.
