Some time ago in class I did drawing of Sol Lewitt’s drawing rules #118:
and this is the result that I came up with:
And this week in class we learned how to draw this on P5.js
and this is how it ended up looking like. So I went home and tried to experiment with this drawing. So I challenged myself and added more rules to #118
To make this easier on my computer I used 20 points instead of 50.
The first addition to the rules: make a new randomized pattern every time you click on the screen.
then the second addition to the rules: click to add a new point that appears randomly.
the third addition to the rules: make them individually move, randomized with each click.
The fourth addition to the rules: click to add a new point that appears randomly, and make them move at random direction and speed.
The fifth addition to the rules: add points by clicking and being able to drag existing points.
So there. that was my journey with Sol Lewitt’s drawing rules #118 on P5.js
There was a point when I couldn’t figure out how to do any of this and had a breakdown and spiraled into the rabbit hole of ‘what if i just suck at coding and picked a wrong career path?’ but everything turned out fine. I’m still struggling with the codes but in fun ways.
