Creative people often yearn for an ‘open brief': the ability to remove the shackles and go mad with creativity. But sometimes this freedom, a blank canvas of opportunity, can be utterly overwhelming. Sometimes it’s necessary to impose arbitrary limitations to aid our creativity; to help give us focus.
There was a second competition to see what could be created without restrictions also, a ‘freestyle’ category. You be the judge — let us know which demos you think are more impressive! Freestyle or limited?
- Creation by Silexars, a gorgeous GLSL/WebGL shader
- 1kk by Hexapode, a retro parallax stars effect with audio
- gl1k Cotton Candy by p01, a 3D fractal ribbon
