An image seems like spines of microbe.

Generative art of aesthetic poison.

This generative art code generates aesthetic poison images with the Vector Field with the Perlin noise. The code is written in the 'Processing' programming language.

It draws lines with multiple 'strokeWeight()' from the same start point of the drawing. And the result seems like spines of microbe.

Calculation of the start point.

    float xPoint = plotRadius * cos(TWO_PI * (xPhase + ptnRatio) * rippleCnt);
    float yPoint = plotRadius * sin(TWO_PI * (yPhase + ptnRatio) * rippleCnt);

Example code of 'Processing'.

This code does not display any images on the screen but generates image files in frames directory.

Please feel free to use this Processing example code, if you like it. To see other works based on my code is my pleasure. And my honor.
