alchemy |’alkemē

Figurative: a process by which paradoxical results are achieved or incompatible elements combined with no obvious rational explanation


Alchemy isn’t software for creating finished artwork, but rather a sketching environment that focuses on the absolute initial stage of the creation process. Intentionally reduced to a level of functionality there are no undo, no selecting, and no editing features. Interaction focuses instead on the output of a great number of good, bad, strange and beautiful shapes.


Alchemy is an open drawing project aimed at exploring how we can sketch, draw, and create on computers in new ways. Try and download a free version at al.chemy.org

Hi Laurent, good to hear from you. Yes, I saw it last week in a dubbed version(without the posh English accent :-). Didn't expect anything special and was surprised... Did you see the book?
