This year I continued to explore generative art. Unfortunately, not that much as I wanted. At the beginning of the year I was making at least one sketch every day. Then once a week, then once in a while. However, here are some results to remind myself that I need to commit more efforts next year.
Built the second version of my generative art toolkit as a wrapper for p5.js. First one from 2018 was built as a wrapper around the Java Processing library and lacks a very important feature: quick feedback. So, I used Kotlin/JS technology for compiling Kotlin code into a js file that was hot-reloaded in a browser. This system meant to be experimental just to start hacking and doing art.
The third version was built as a library agnostics toolkit for generative art with the sketch-as-a-data approach and client-server implementation to fake hot-reload. The new tool is decomposed into different modules so it'll be easier to change and/or refactor them one-by-one. JVM-only environment is supported for now, but in 2020 I have plans to extend it to Kotlin Multiplatform.
Here are some highlights:
After seeing Vela Molnar works I've decided to add colors to my sketch as well.
Some selected sketches that I've found interesting/enjoying.
Actually, not a finished/enjoyable one but I'm including it as a reminder for myself to work on it in this year.
