Inspired by the cover art for the album Fainted Hearted by Miles in openFrameworks. The forms immediately looked like something which could be constructed algorthmically with each individual line bent and rotated in a slightly different angle expressed as two planes of rotation for each line. Patterns can be expressed; rhythmic movements, tending always towards chaos.

The impression of movement which this image infuses on the retinal surface seems to share aspects with op-art.

Waving lines generated with openFrameworks

  • Each line is rendered with a polygon line at a specific resolution of flex points
  • the arc of the points is calculated as rotation in both the x-z and x-y planes
  • The calculations are performed using quaternions
Art is not chaos but a composition of chaos that yields the vision or sensation, so that it conststitues, as Joyce says, a chaosmos, a composed chaos--neither forseen not preconceived. Art transforms chaotic variability in _chaoid_ variety[...] ([Delezue and Guattari, _What is Philosophy?_](http://monoskop.org/Gilles_Deleuze#Books_2))

The project code is on Github and more images appear on a tumblr.
