Below are some screen shots of the results I got while playing around with the variables in my perlin noise flow generator. This is the Dan Shiffman video that helped me code this.

The perlin noise generator produces incredibly natural-looking threads, paths, hairs,
and and ripples across the canvas. I played with the variable values, particle count,
and offset values to get so many varying results.

These are only a select few. These patterns were then laser cut onto wooden panels.
The wood grain, wood color, and specific images, produced many different results.
I intended to have people arrange the panels so that there would be a continuous
path or bolt that strings through the work. This is an interactive piece that invites
touch, play, observation, and puzzle-solving. I used wood as my medium because it
was such a versatile material created by resources taken from nature itself.

This is a photo of the laser cutter engraving a pattern. The quality is a bit iffy because the
laser cutter moves so quickly.


****more photos will be edited in after tonight

Schmoodge the JellyRabbit

blobbo                blobbo-grows-legs


  • Entertainment and exercise; Schmoodge likes riverdance a lot! However, Schmoodge can be kind of sleepy if he isn’t kept active.
  • Attention; Schmoodge is a very social but sensitive JellyRabbit. If ignored for too long, Schmoodge becomes visibly upset and will hold a grudge. Schmoodge shows this by flopping his ear stocks down to tongue length and closing his mouth completely. The best way to show affection to Schmoodge is to encourage him to do his best and lightly pet his ear stocks.
  • Nutrients; Schmoodge really loves pasta and lollipops. They remind him of the good old days. However, too many carbs/sugars and too little exercise will cause Schmoodge to gain a lot of weight. He will not be able to support himself with his legs if he gets too fat. He needs a balanced diet of fruits and vegetables (Schmoodge in particular really enjoys blueberries smoothies and sautéed broccoli).
  • Rest; Schmoodge will become very anxious and irritable if he does not rest enough. Schmoodge will only sleep if he trusts his company 100%, as he sleeps by tucking in his legs and ear stocks. This makes Schmoodge vulnerable to danger because his hearing is muffled and his legs are not accessible at the drop of the hat. To have Schmoodge trust you enough to fall asleep, you must build a relationship with him. Schmoodge loves lullabies and music in general. Singing Schmoodge a lullaby is a very nice way to gain his trust and encourage him to sleep.

Rhea Nayyar – Loop drawing

Loop Drawing- Flashy Dancefloor

I actually had this done before class started, I just had many problems trying to upload the file onto my andrew space. My free trial of Fetch had ended so I thought the quickest way to upload would be on my Neocities page but it refused to work properly. Then I tried download Fetch again which failed. Then I remembered FileZilla which ended up working but I kept on putting my index.html file into my “www” folder (like I recall doing with my drawing tool and drawing tool 2.0) which caused my andrew site to crash. Then I got really mad and just threw the entire project folder in there and it worked. Moral of the story is that when in doubt, just put the entire project in the www folder…
