I created a relatively simple recursive algorithm in Processing which allows me to control any number of parameters of a geometric fractal. The function repeats it self changing parameters for the size and position and then calls another function to render a predefined graphic using the resulting data. Based on a set percentage and a randomized number, the function also recalls itself twice, causing the graphic system to branch.

Adjusting the initial parameter for the first call to the function, those for how each generation is calculated, and the graphic function can produce innumerable different forms and textures. These are a few images I have created using the scripts. Processing also has the ability to export graphics as vector graphics, which can be scaled and used in vector software such as Illustrator. I am working on an application which will allow the parameters to be changed through an interface within the application.

    I like your websiiiiiite. Also you do amazing arts. Make more so I can admire.

    I was admiring your incredible work. I have been very curious for awhile now about the sizes you can make and also if you could then make vector work from the images. I would love to do some extra large peices….but have not made the effort yet to learn. Is there any links, or places that you could recommend that explains how you do these.
    I am inspired by your work and now I want to learn how to do….thanks-Arlene
