** CLICK TO ADD PARTICLE **
** PRESS ANY KEY TO CHANGE ATTRACTION POINT, ACCORDING TO THE LIGHTNESS OF THE IMAGE **
The composition that I created is one where particles interact with the image beneath them. When you click a particle is added that hops around the canvas. When a key is pressed the particles gravitate to a consistent level of brightness in the pixels, this brightness increases every time the key is pressed. The results is particles swarming around gradations of lightness as you continuously press the keys. I chose this image so that I see how the particles will first swarm around the dark green parts of the image, then the grey, then dark yellow, etc. until they are only attracted to the very brightest parts of the flower.
This was an excellent opportunity for me to understand the behavior of particles and the application of this to what we have learned about image manipulation. Enjoy!
