Experimenting with Processing 2.0 (processing.org) and generative visuals. I was aiming for something quite a bit simpler (at least, it would be simple for someone whose trigonometry kung fu is greater than mine...) -- basically, I just wanted to rotate the circles I've been working with (e.g. here: youtu.be/6oEJt0mTOlw and here: youtu.be/jilOtXYpU9E). Oh well, I can't say I quite understand what I've done here, but it's not altogether uninteresting, I think. This runs quite a bit slower in real time, which is apparently due to the fact that an almost infinite number of circles are being generated simultaneously, stretching far beyond the narrow window of the computer screen. In collating the screenshots into a movie file, I sped things up to 10 fps.
I uploaded this previously on Youtube, but the quality was very poor. Perhaps due to the framerate? Anyway, hoping it will turn out better here on Vimeo.
