    Drawing Universes

Date July 2008
Realized during Pause workshop, with Casey Reas
Programmed in Processing
Teacher: Casey Reas

I developed this project during a workshop with Casey Reas. Starting from Jorge Luis Borges's novel The Garden of Forking Paths, we had to develop an interactive software with Processing.
Drawing Universes is basically a drawing application, based on the concept of parallel universes: different worlds that looks like ours, but that works according to different rules.
The user can draw anything on the left part of the screen, and he'll get different outputs according to the universe that has been selected: a composition of mirroring tiles, a pattern of growing roots or an ephimeral line that bubbles away after a few seconds.
