Random Walks with Triangles

May 2nd, 2021

Lately, I’ve been using random walks a lot, also seen in my sketches exploring Perlin Noise. The images below are random walks featuring randomized polygon size and rotation. I like how the rotation amounts give each walk a “curling” character.

I’ve also been building a library of p5.js helpers, inspired by Tyler Hobbs. The source code for my random walk helpers can be found here.

Visual Inspiration

Apr 30th, 2021

Laurie Spiegel - Early Computer Art from 1970s Bell Labs My brain tends to find multiple interpretations of these at times eerie, lofi sketches.

Jared Tarbell - Sand Traveler Jared often uses a “sand painting” technique that I like. I used it a lot when starting out making generative art, and would like to explore it more again.

Alexander Mordvintsev - Hexells Self-organzing cells with a pleasing interaction. (Part of a curated gallery by Nick Montfort, whose book of computational poetry called #! I recently bought.)

Alexis André - Flip Flops I love the colors in this image. I wish this artist published more outside of Instagram.
