Algorithmic Trees

Completed: 2022

While participating in Genuary 2021, I found a way to draw trees using a bunch of interpolated paths. I later revisited and elaborated on this method in late 2022 while participating in ptpx, a plotter postcard exchange. The updated algorithm exposes some of its params via sliders and is based on deterministic random numbers, making the output reproducible given a random seed (ha!). To view the code, see a visual explanation of the generation steps and interact with the final output, visit the Observable notebook:
