I knew right off the bat that I wanted to explore the some sort of curve, so I just clicked around on math world until I found a curve that I liked (this one is called a lituus), and went from there. I figured out the properties and arranged them in a composition I found compelling. I then generated a pdf and plotted it.
The quality of the picture that I’ve attached isn’t particularly high, so all of the spirals look like they’re silver, when in reality, they’re different metallic colors. But the lines are so thin that the variation in the color is quite subtle, creating an effect that I really like.
