For this project, I was inspired by my love for Taoism and the beautiful symbols that have come out of the philosophy. I wanted to create a mod podge series of 3 sketches that encompassed what I had learned over the semester. For my first sketch, I created a class…
For this homework assignment, I used interactive arrays to create a particle system of wiggly spiders that ate flies. When you click the mouse, the spiders change color and the wings of the flies change. This project is currently a work in progress. I plan to add different bugs, probably change the background, and add a score/game interface (levels, start & game over page).
For my first sketch, I took a shot at recreating the sketch in the link above from szetlat’s Instagram page. To do this, I created a nested for loop with curved rectangles that change their widths and lengths as they rotate. I created two variables and used the map(), translate() and sin() functions to adjust the overlap of the rectangles and size transformations of the rectangles while they spin. I also made sure to offset the rotational speed of the rectangles to create that wave-like motion that runs through the design.
I then created 3 variations of this piece by playing with the parameters of the aforementioned functions.
