Toby Skinner Generative Art Forest
'Forest' by Toby Skinner


Ideas from both Tapestry and Fields combine: Vector Fields are used as the driving data source, each vector position is mapped to an HSB colour each step and a scan-line algorithm renders one line at a time (top to bottom).

What we see is a small window onto an infinite plane, this plan began to look like a dark forest of trees (albeit off-colour and abstracted) so work then began on tweaking and guiding the algorithm towards the final render.

This is a great example of freely exploring a generator (the vector field function) and finding something that looks familiar which we then guide torwards a final idea. The full set of steps from start to finish have been included below.
