Experience

  • Aesthetic Engine 2
    http://brutalism.rs/project/aesthetic-engine-2/

    Aesthetic Engine 2 is simultaneously a web browser, a generative data sculpture, and a shape-shifting painting. It visualizes the hidden complexity behind our everyday web browsing.

    Each web page is rendered using predefined rules for different groups of HTML tags. The content, which is visible to users in conventional web browsers (paragraphs, images, etc.), is rendered using the thickest shapes. Scaffolding around visible content—all of the “invisible” internal stuff—is rendered using thinner strands escaping from the middle of the structure. JavaScript code, CSS files, and all other externally loaded resources are rendered as twisting lines wrapping themselves around the structure. Lastly, the web page’s code is scraped for all outgoing links (URLs) and each of them is rendered as a long line escaping from the structure outward, therefore visualizing the “connectedness” of the page.

  • Virgin America iOS Application

    I worked on making the Virgin America iOS app with the award-winning Work & Co agency.

  • Top Eleven for iOS

    I was the lead developer on the team that built the iOS version of the world's most popular online sports game.

  • BRUTALISM Generative Logo
    http://brutalism.rs/post/process-bru-3-the-logo-generator/

    The generative logo for my studio. Check out the code as well (it's mostly ClojureScript): https://github.com/BRUTALISM/BRU-3

  • ObjectiveMixin
    https://github.com/vl4dimir/ObjectiveMixin

    ObjectiveMixin is a popular open-source library that I wrote for iOS. It gives Ruby-like mixin functionality to Objective-C programs.

  • Spomenik
    http://brutalism.rs/project/spomenik/

    Spomenik is a turn-based city-builder game in which you build a city on multiple levels: in reality, and in its inhabitants’ dreams. I'm making this game independently.

  • Medjed
    http://brutalism.rs/project/medjed/

    A procedural terrain generator project I worked on in my spare time. It uses volumetric density functions and vector fields to generate the terrain, using no premodeled geometry.

  • Hero of Allacrost

    Designed and wrote a data scripting interface for loading arbitrary data structures (map tiles, sprites, effects) from Lua and make them visible as C++ objects inside the game engine.

  • Unwelcome Gaze
    http://brutalism.rs/project/unwelcome-gaze/

    Unwelcome Gaze is a triptych visualizing the publicly reachable web server infrastructure of these companies and the routing graph(s) leading to them. Over many weeks of meticulous network reconnaissance, the routing information has been gathered and persisted locally. From it, a routing graph was reconstructed for each of the three networks. Each graph was then visualized as a generative three-dimensional sculpture, constantly shifting its appearance – just like the data it portrays.

  • Itinerant
    http://brutalism.rs/project/itinerant/

    Itinerant is an experimental weather forecast app, utilizing the human visual perception system (i.e. recognizing shapes and colors) instead of the symbolic interpretation system (i.e. reading words and numbers). It is an experiment in outperforming traditional weather information data displays in terms of how long it takes to parse and understand the information. Even more importantly, it is an experiment in helping to change the nature of that understanding.
