There are fascinating pictures created by John Franzen called EACH LINE ONE BREATH where he draws line by line mesmerizing large-scale pictures.
Recently I stumbled upon Linetrace by inconvergent where Anders Hof tries to capture the essence of that process in algorithms.
Here I am exploring whether simple Perlin noise can create similar pictures - for this I am starting from a regular grid adding Perlin noise to the positions. After that lines connecting the vertical ‘columns’ are connected.
Pressing the key ‘r’ will draw a figure with some different random values.
For such a simple approach, the results are quite intriguing - and changing the parameters results in a wide variety of drawings:
