Generative Art Project

JMY's next project builds upon his previous releases and the algorithm Gravity. What has evolved since last release? So far there are a few new concepts:

  1. A new ratio. All previous releases has been in a square format 1:1. This time a portrait / landscape (and maybe also square) format might be used.
  2. A new drawing technique. Instead of putting down the pen on randomly new positions on the canvas, another techique is explored, to place the pen along a line over the canvas and let it start drawing from each point on the line. Then adding more lines to draw from. This adds a little bit of a brush effect and reveals the gravity field by only draw a few lines. It also adds more of an analog and sketchy feeling to the artwork.
  3. A new palette system. Enabling the possiblity to create a palette by tween the values hue, saturation and brightness over a timeline. Each node in the gravity field is connected to a point on the timeline.
  4. A second gravity field disturbing the main gravity field.
