One of my favorite parts of the Ello experience has been meeting new people from around the world who share interests in general creativity and positivity. I've watched any number of people use Ello to collaborate on poetry, remix other users' designs, sell their art, talk about deep issues, and lots more. There's incredible creative connection happening, and I encourage you to reach out to other users and tell them what you like about what they're doing. We don't have a "like" button, and because of this, people have actually been talking to each other and have learned a lot in the process. Ask someone a question, and maybe you'll start a life-changing conversation!
One really great example of this type of interaction: @renspacemadness (from Santiago, Chile) asked me on behalf of @proyectoensamble to take a @libedlulo design and remix it with code. They had seen my gif animations and thought that we might make something nice by combining our efforts. A couple months (sorry) later I finally found a small block of time on an airplane, and I wrote some code to animate @libedlulo's lovely vector drawing. See the full version on her page.
Here's what @renspacemadness said:
Hey guys, did you see the awesome collab between our design studio and @cacheflowe?
Some time ago, @libedlulo design this pattern, based on wheat and some Native South American cultures from south of Chile. We send this to @cacheflowe to see if he could put some random animation with processing into it, and Ta-Da, this is what happens. So Enjoy!!
Let's play, okay?
