LUNA is a visual language for dynamic procedural modeling. Built as a custom graph-based scene language, LUNA adopts a tile metaphor to enable rapid experimentation with dynamic geometric operators. The data flowing through the LUNA graph consists of multimedia objects such as images, meshes, geometric instances, sounds and text. Luna was developed as a dissertation on the benefits and limitations of creativity support tools in computer graphics and media arts.
