Toby Skinner Generative Art Tree
'Tree' by Toby Skinner


Exploring recursive branching at a low-resolution.

Colour palettes are pulled from the Brands project.

Custom tooling was built to explore different palettes, branching factors and rendering techniques.

The rendering technique settling on for this series plots thousands of separate boxes along each branch, pulling a random colour from the selected palette. Boxes overlay and their position/size slightly altered with random data.

Can this exact image be re-produced? No, as the tree grows and branches, random numbers are used to determine direction and length. An image in a similar style could be produced however.

Are there any other images on this website that were generated by this algorithm?

Is this a limited edition print? No

How can I buy a print? Please get in touch with your requirements.
