Get in line

I’ve been lucky to be very busy lately. I’m currently wrapping up the design phase for my first building project, hence the lack of updates here. One of the more interesting elements in my current project is a large canopy with an transforming column pattern supporting a long central beam. Before finalizing the pattern, I did some quick sketches using processing. While doing these, a typo resulted in a very interesting effect so I thought I would share it here. As new radial lines are draw from the left corners, their intersections create an interesting curving effect. It’s also interesting to observe how the consistent imperfections in the method the computer uses to draw the lines results in some interesting patterns as well.
