Random design #26

Watercolor, the most random medium in visual art!

What are the chances of the same blob of color landing at the exact same place with the same hue intensity? 1 in a 10,000,000 Maybe?

Ryan Paul‘s script after a draft by Mike Bostock let you decide the size of your canvas, how many colors you want and randomly decides what goes where.

Maybe not what he had in mind – but watercolor is definitely the signature pattern coming out of it! Interestingly, FloodFill is the name of the script.  More like a mountainscape to me – but why not!

One of the simplest and most effective demonstrations of random in science & art. Elegant too, a colorist dream come true!

Random design #3 – AI poetry

Random design #3

A Watercolor?

What are the chances of a robot seeing my work? Many. What are the chances of a robot showing me what it sees? Very few!

Thanks to the Deepdream team, I took my two previous work to their random algorithm – and this is what the AI saw.

I haven’t done watercolor in years! I didn’t know robots had watercolor dreams! I was so surprised I (almost) left it as is. I put actual image #1 in the background to show where the transformation started from.
