Week 12: Activity

Algorithmic/Procedural Art

My idea was to develop ways to convert numbers into line drawings. The first procedure was to draw a line, the length of which was based on the number, and then 90 degrees from the end of that line, the next line would be drawn.

Following this procedure for the first 100 digits of pi took quite a while, and I’m fairly certain that I made at least one mistake.

I then extended this procedure to include letters, by assigning each letter a number from 0 to 9.


I think it would be easy to write a program to generate these. Maybe I’ll commision one of my CECS friends to help me out. With a program written, it would be interseting to convert longer texts to see what kind of shapes form.
