Make an animation starting with a chess board and finishing with a chess board in a maximum of 180 frames. That was the brief on a twitter thread recently. There were some very clever entries.

Craig S. Kaplan collected and assembled all the submissions into the video shown here (a huge amount of work, read his article if you're interested). His website is a good place to view - you can change the speed of the animations and the quality of the display is better.


Processing patterns - 02.12.2020

I first got a computer back in the early 1980s - a Sinclair Spectrum. You either copied programs from magazines by typing them in on the little rubber keyboard, or loaded saved programs from a cassette tape. After doing both of these for a few weeks, I started to read the manual and slowly learned a little programming in Sinclair Basic.

This was the first thing I made which ran successfully. Just drawing a line which followed a sort of square spiral and relying on a drawing function which only turns on a pixel if the original pixel is blank. It's fascinating watching simple rules produce complex outcomes. It was one of the first things I tried to reproduce when I discovered the processing language.

Play with the code here.
