Generative Art Experiment – Perlin Noise 1

Unfortunately your browser is not able to show this content.

You can download perlinnoise_1.pde (Sourcecode) and compile it with Processing.

This sketch is an experiment using perlin noise. This creates an interesting random “flow”. In this sketch both the position of the circles as well as the colors are generated using perlin noise. The colors especially show a nice flowing transition from one color to the next.

Normal distribution paint splatter

Unfortunately your browser is not able to show this content.

You can download normal_distribution_paint_splatter.pde (Sourcecode) and compile it with Processing.

Further explorations into randomness this time using a normal (or gaussian) distribution. This is a randomization process that shows a natural distribution instead of complete randomness. For instance the height of a population is distributed this way. People can be 150 cm to 240 cm but most people have a height around the mean (somewhere around 180 or something).

This first example splatters paint around your mouse (x-mean and y-mean) position based on a standard deviation of 30 pixels.

End result looks like the aftermath of a confetti party 😉
