Recursive Tile #31

Le Random Logo

Digital Edition of 48
Realtime, JavaScript and WebGL, variable dimensions, web-app ready
From the series Matrices

Collectors have the option of acquiring a physical 32 x 32 x 3 cm LED display with custom electronics and software for an additional 1.5ETH.

Recursive Tile
, like 64 Pixel, is part of the Matrices series based on the physical limitation of 64x64 pxl LED matrices. In this project, an 8x8 tile is repeatedly used to form the larger composition of itself. The recursive algorithm replicates the succession of a series of abstract compositions in motion. This artwork can be viewed in the browser and the program is resolution independent and will adapt to any size and aspect ratio of the browser window; it can also be installed on mobile devices in the form of a “web-app” for fullscreen playback.

Keyboard controls:
f : fullscreen window
c : hide cursor
p : export a frame (PNG)
1 : scale to 1:1 physical pixel

Note: some additional parameters can be set through the URL query string (see html for details).
