Growth patterns, version 2. January 2022
Edition of 512

Growth v02 is an generative exploration of patterns in the style of William Morris' iconic wallpaper designs from the 1800s. The code for the Growth series was originally designed to create plausible road networks but has been rewritten to create more organic curved forms. Created with p5js.

'space' to pause the simulation
'h' to toggle to higher res (increases canvas size but runs slower: great for screengrabs)
'r' to reset the seed (some features are locked to the original hash)
's' to save an image to disk
All generated patterns are tile-able horizontally and vertically.

This project relies heavily on randomly generated values. It has been thoroughly tested. However, there is always the chance that the wrong combination of randomness can create less-compelling growth.
