"If Postmodernism rejects the functionally-driven design of Modernism, the New Aesthetic is a "Semimodernism": it embraces the formal results of functional design but ignores the motivation."
- Kyle McDonald

theNewAesthetic.js is an executable-essay / open-source javascript artware-library for quick [re]production of 'New Aesthetic' compositions and related new-media art tropes. theNewAesthetic.js is also the latest project in an ongoing series of New-Media Art One-Liners

artist and researcher Greg Borenstein has compared the New Aesthetic [NA] to a recent movement in philosophy called Object Oriented Ontology. So it only seemed appropriate to utilize an object-oriented programming language, like javascript, to code-ify it.

theNewAesthetic.js uses the HTML5 canvas element, so you'll need a modern browser (fux IE), there's a tad bit of server side activities, so (where noted) it's best to run a local server for development ( i.e. MAMP or WAMP )

"At its best, this could be a useful movement. At its worst, another meme."
- Aimée Knight
