About

你好!
I'm Contra Luo (aka AvantContra) from China. I have been a senior game/App/Web developer about 15 years, and now a creative technologist making computational art, generative art, interactive media, and other creative applications.

Experimental Programming, meaning is derived from experimental art, experimental electronics, or experimental music.
And that's how I create things through programming.

The languages/tools I use recently are MaxMSP (Jitter), Javascript(React), Python and Blender. But actually I also use Unity, Processing/P5js, Pure Data, and more sometimes.

On Patreon I will share my computational artwork, patches, source code and experiences in creative projects developing.

Most of my sharing things are open source or free, and the creating process is usually in videos and articles, but I'll give you back for your kindly donation.
There are three tiers below:

Ⅰ. Demo:
Source code / patches of lightweight demos focusing on the rapid implementation of local effects / functions / algorithms. Such as [Patch a dirty] series:






Ⅱ. Experiment:
[Coding Druid] series is my horizontal programming notes, each part around a topic like mathematical, art, electronic, graphics, sound, etc., implemented in several programming languages. Such as:
Part: Math
Chapter: Trigonometric Function
Section: MaxMSP, JavaScript (React), Python, or Unity3D



Chapter: Fourier Series
Section: JavaScript (React), Python + Blender, or Unity3D



Some of [Experimental] series, will be more complicated or serious. For example:



Some projects out of above are open source, but you still could buy me a coffee ;p


Ⅲ. Advanced:
Some projects bigger than above, and artworks like generative art. And how I made it.

Drawing anything with Fourier Series using Blender and Python




You also can get the most source code / patches separately in Gumroad.

With your help, I can keep creating more and better meaningful content!
Thank you!

That's more than 10 cups of coffee!
I can guarantee to create works at least once a week.
