Saul Woolf’s Geometric Abstraction

When I first started this project, I had no idea inspiration piece was animated. Zanis Waldheims animation was a bit too complex to recreate, but my attempt came out better than I’d hoped.

The hold program would have been near impossible without patches.

The body of the program (shown above) has two different kinds patches in it.  The top one (below the third toggle) is a timer that outputs a new integer every few milliseconds.

All of the patches in the grid at the bottom of the main program are identical, as shown below. Each uses its inputs, modifies them and passes them on to the next.

The following gif is the piece by Zanis Waldheims that inspired my project.

    This is definitely an interesting use of animation and variability. This was certainly beyond the scope of the assignment.

    I love the shifting cubes giving way to the floral pattern, as well as the petal-like gradient. It looks beautiful.

    The use of movement and many shapes creates a very unique almost flowering affect, especially coupled with the mostly cool color scheme.

    Wow! This reminds me of the hippie movement. The colors blend very well and the radial shapes and motion give the piece a great deal of depth. At times it felt like there was a lot going on and it got overwhelming, but overall a great job.

    The use of colors is really cool, I liked the brightly colored cubes near the beginning in particular. The whole animation is trippy and you seem to get lost in it, really cool design.

    This design is amazing! I had trouble just making circles, what did you use to get this pattern?
