Simple Nest

August 13th, 2008 · 3 Comments · Art, Code, Concept, Digital Process, Drawing

I’m learning to draw with code. A lot of what I’ve seen out there in the interwebs is based on mathematical theories named after dudes from the sixties and seventies. I’m inspired by all that, but I’m also interested in recreating systems in nature through generative art. Here is a simple nest I drew with AS3, it’s based on some basic circle math I picked up here.

The twigs are all positioned and sized w/ code. The eggs shape was made by hand, but positioned w/ code. In the future I plan to further randomize the shape, color and characteristic of each twig.

    Hey Jacob,

    would you allow me to use the above drawing of the nest for a schematic figure in my dissertation?
    Thanks for your answer,
