1. The X-agon Spiral
– number of side increases, until a triangle becomes a “circle”.
– the z and hue is rotated at a set increment
2. The Star Cluster
– number of sides, phi, radius, and all angles (outer tip, inner angles…) are defined.
– a block is defined to create the star with predefined variables.
– various methods of exploiting the shape is shown
3. Random Rainbows
– used given hatched rectangle script
– altered to produce random overlaps by rotation
– increasing in scale and with rainbow gradient
4. Islamic Pattern (Printed!)
– goal was to create an Islamic geometry inspired pattern
– used the idea of a asymmetrical rotated square to create overlaps
– produced very intricate geometry and moments of pinpoint
Printed Pattern had no issues, used blue ball point pen.
6. Random Contained Segments
– goal was to create a contained mess
– used the push and pop blocks to contain the mess to a general area
– used start and stop blocks to create segmented lines
7. Random Contained Lines
– same idea as the Random Contained Segments experiment but with “poly-lines”
8. Random Lines Equals Square (Printed!)
– goal was to create a series of tightly spaced dashed lines
– used the random start and stop drawing sequences
– in four directions to create a square upon overlap
