PreNeo Press is focusing in on creative strategies with a new online project: Focus Generator.
Focus Generator is a tool for artists who enjoy the challenge of randomly set project parameters; and for those who find that preset parameters help them to focus their creative energies into projects beyond their previous imaginings.
Focus Generator comes in three flavors:Â Focus Generator, is the primary engine and provides the highest level of challenge for the contemporary creative.Â Focus Light is a mid level machine for those who know their media yet enjoy the challenge of content triggers.Â Custom Focus provides the the highest level of individuation as it allows Participants to custom select from four areas of randomly generated stimuli.
Take theÂ Focus Generator Challenge and check out the creative work ofÂ Focus Generator Participants:Â http://focusgenerator.net
