A lot of the pictures in Algorithmic Art were made using a program I started on a few days ago. I took Curtain and made it 3D. The fabric gets created in the center of the screen, with different parts of it being accelerated in all directions. It’s rendered onto the screen semi-transparently over and over and eventually you get a very organic nebula-like piece of art.
I feel like a lot of what makes the pictures amazing is watching the nebula itself grow. I cleaned it up, and released the applet online which you can try by clicking here. I’ve also uploaded the source on OpenProcessing and Hawkee
