Mondrian’s Broadway Boogie Woogie was completed 1943 in New York and connects his abstract work with the real-world grid of streets in Manhattan.
This makes it attractive to interpret the colored patches as cars and animate them correspondingly…
It still would be very cool to have a clean ending where every car returns to its starting position, settling there while the city noise goes down again, but with the current logic the cars are quite ‘free’ and it looks difficult to generate a suitable schedule for fitting car tracks, unfortunately.
In case you are curious, here the steps and tools I used to create this animation:
The logic for the cars required quite a bit of fiddling with the logic and the parameters as traffic jams arise very easily (as in real life)
Here a glimpse ‘behind the scenes’: my debugging view of streets, cars, their visual field (gray rectangles) and various events (green has right-of-way, larger gray circles indicate being blocked etc)
