CAT_gpt: Cellular Automatas through Grafted Poetic Text

Art & Play - Hall H

Workshop for live coding visuals using ASCII characters. During the workshop I will be introducing "CAT_gpt",a web environment for live coding visuals with ASCII characters.

What is it? It is a character-base environment where ASCII characters are updating cellular automatas' rules, making dynamic patterns, and custom-characters can control general overall parameters such as: hue, saturation, pixel size, etc (or any other visual control you can imagine :-) )
