Here is a little program I’ve been playing around with (inspired by the theme Evolution, which didn’t make it again):
- Random Art Evolver (Flash)
This program generates random images based on a code (which is shown at the bottom) and mutates them. When you click on one of the images, you’ll see it in full size at the right and all images will start to evolve from that point on. If none of those get any better, you can restart the same code by clicking on the large image.
Once you have found an image you want to use for something, you could capture the screen and save it somewhere as a bitmap, but the idea is to simply save the code and use a function to generate the image at any time.
The library is for haXe, it generates a BitmapData from a given String. It shouldn’t be too hard to port it to as3 as well.
