DANIEL FERREIRA     DIGITAL CREATIVE
Scribbles (Adrian Ward) algorithm

Programming is no less an art form than, say, painting is a technical process. (Ward, 1999)

Adrian Ward is a digital artist and musician. Since his first contact with computers his approach with technology has always been subversive. In the article How I Drew One Of My Pictures the artist describes a simple ZX BASIC program that “scribbles” on the screen. I use this algorithm as an example in my masters dissertation about procedural poetics (about).

See my implementation of the algorithm in Processing here (new tab).

Attention (2014/02/01): in new Java versions this application requires a “medium” security setting (Windows/Control Panel)

View some images from the algorithm’s output in the full post (below).
