I took this photo last fall and it’s been the inspiration for my next set of experiments here. I plan on exploring the color palette and makeup of these walnuts. I’ll probably use a mix of generative art w/ ActionScript and possibly some watercolor or silkscreen prints down the road. I’m doing this because I’m inspired by systems that exist in nature. The breakdown of these walnuts are part of natures plan, much like how seeds grow and flowers bloom.

There are mathematical patterns in nature. Each seed is designed the same. Yet there are random elements that allow them all to look different. The forces in nature play within a set amount of rules, but the variables make each of these walnuts unique. In my opinion this is largely what creates beauty in nature.

The first experiment will be pretty simple and have to do w/ circles of varying size and color that will emulate the layers of these walnuts. Also, I’m kind of just using the walnuts as a starting point, who knows where I’ll end up.
