2018 - Interactive Digital Installation
Growth is a user-driven digital drawing/animation installation. The user, through a physical controller, draws abstract images by guiding a brush that creates plant-like patterns and shapes. I aimed to provide an experience where the users would lose track of time.
Growth is my first extensive creative coding project.
I coded it in P5.js, so it also works in the browser. While working on it, I aimed to generate plant-like visuals in the simplest way I could devise. I stumbled upon interesting looks and patterns, which I've also included in this page. I've ended up creating a system which relies on both the random() and the noise() functions. In other words; I've used mathematical representations of both randomness and natural order in order to create the drawing system
The final version can be controlled both by the physical controller and the html elements. It's possible to create a variety of aesthetics with the system.
