This was an interesting project to work on- upon quick observation I knew the tactic I would use to recreate the lines (having a grid of center points that lines of certain length would randomly pivot on) and place them within a padded canvas (to prevent lines from going off-screen). The challenging part for me was the missing lines, and how to achieve them. My approach was to use multiple levels of randomGaussian() and random() functions. I would have a random amount of “blank spots” that had a random amount of “spread” (size of spot), which had a random number of lines within that spread hide or remain showing. While it looks similar to the original artworks, my rendering doesn’t have the same sense of “closeness” some of the original artworks portray in their blank spots. Like tight “tubes” of white, mine are more like soft areas/circles of blank.
