The Shape of Things is a generative art collection that uses color, position and translucency to simulate movement.
Each piece is uniquely simulated from a program developed using p5.js.
The possible number of resulting designs is practically infinite.
First, either a black or white background is chosen at random. Then shape types, sizes and positions are also randomly selected within a specified range.
Each color is generated from all possible Red Green Blue (RGB) values, where each can take on a value from 0 to 255. That’s 256 x 256 x 256 = 18,821,096 possible colors.
It’s a fascinating collaboration for the artist to set the design and then watch what the computer comes up with!
