Circle, whorl

Unique pen plotted generative art, each a 1 of 1.

300 concentric circles, broken up by the simple rule of increasing the chance as you move from the middle to the edge.


Whorl, such a good word! As part of a test of new code, I made three circles, one with the inside-out rule, one outside in and a final one top to bottom. This one has a little algorithmic wobble to the line. 

There's something lovely and almost hand-drawn about this (although drawn by robot), Heart of Darkness ink on watercolour paper looks so good.

Special Instructions

The ink used in this work is archival-ink, light-fast and fade-resistant, the paper is acid-free and also fade-resistant. That said, it's still probably wise to frame it and hang it somewhere out of direct sunlight.
