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
