Somehow this image of the day disappeared, read: “Migrating servers”.
It would be trivial to restore it, but this marks the day the site went down as the migration begun. Actually from this day (12/11/2019) til late January 2019 the Image of the day bot was broken, well disabled.
First draft of this message: 25/01/2019.
New work in progress: “Recursive Polygon”. Also a working title, but they usually stick.
With generative graphics there is a moment that confirms the idea has some legs.
Most ideas actually never reach this moment. As the algorithm grows from dreamed visuals through to realised code, and the blurry region between, in early stages an algorithm often shares little similarity with the vision in the mind’s eye. A careful balance between persistence and vision is needed; persistence is needed to push through early failures and vision to realise when the idea or the particular approach is actually a lost cause.
Then hopefully, the moment where the vision works, which just happened: polygon recursive finally hits aesthetically rewarding status.
Here are some early screen captures:
