I tried to create a cloud chamber image.

I tried to make a cloud chamber.

This generative art was made with the 'Processing'.

I wanted to make a cloud chamber. And I failed as always. XP But I love this results. I had fun making these glowing wires.

The 'Processing' example code (Java).

Please feel free to use this code under the terms of the GPL.
To see other works based on my code is my pleasure. And my honor.

What I was doing here? I don't know. 😅

map(noise(noiseBri), 0.0, 1.0, 0.0, 1.0);
