The Quarter Round Mosaic

The Quarter Round Mosaic is an interesting experiment and so aesthetically pleasing…The projects is a “geometric assembly exploring the influence of color in an arbitrarily generated field. Each mosaic is generated over time so that shapes placed earlier in the process have more influence on the composition. At a regular interval, a quarter round shape is placed in some empty grid space. The quarter round immediately polls all of its neighbors (existing or not) to determine the mean average color of the region. It then transforms itself to that color and rotates to some random orthogonal orientation.”Design and code by Jared Tarbell….See some images below and check out the site HERE!
