CYPRESS, Calif. – (May 4, 2015) – Christie® was the proud sponsor of the James B. Hunt Jr. Library’s Code+Art contest at North Carolina State University. The contest challenged students to develop large-scale, data-driven ‘generative art’ for library’s 20-foot wide Art Wall and curved iPearl Immersion Theater. The results were on display until April 29.

Anthony Smith, a senior in Computer Science with a concentration in Game Development, captured first prize for his Fractal Forest visualization, which shows a planet that grows various types of trees in conjunction with people entering the library. It also features a sun and moon simulation and time and weather data. As people add to and interact with the visualization, it progresses and changes.
