Picture Garden was my first collage-generator, made on the Commodore Amiga in 1988. I re-created it for the web, chunky pixels and all, in 2014. It looks best on a 16:9 screen like a 1920 x 1080 monitor or 4K TV.

The others adjust to any screen dimensions. Each piece is now a single, self-contained HTML file, and I encourage you to save the ones you like to your own computer.

To do that in Safari, just run the one you want to save, right-click, then Save Page As. Other browsers may require you to inspect the source, which can be daunting, but if you want a copy of Checkered Future, know that checkeredfuture.html is the only file you need to download.

To have any of these running for hours without interruption, be sure to change the computer's Energy Saver settings to never shut down due to inactivity, and its Screen Saver prefs to never start a screensaver.

Older projects include two talking heads that ramble on indefinitely:

Uncle Weevy

Uncle Weevy, from 2001, still works in Windows with a little coaxing, last time I checked. Your computer will try to convince you that it's dangerous to download, which it isn't. It's artware, not malware, but Windows can't tell the difference. If you have nerves of steel (or an old Windows computer you were planning to get rid of anyway), run UncleWeevyInstall.exe (10.7 MB). You will need to install a particular version of DirectX 9.0c as well.

Or just click on his picture for a short sample on YouTube.

Steve Headroom

Steve Headroom was created on the Amiga, and served as emcee of the 1993 Binary Visions show in San Francisco.
