Motivation Welcome to the inaugural post of my 12 months of aRt project! In these posts I’ll walk through my motivations, technical aspects, and design choices for various generative/data art projects I make using R. Read more about my reasons and expectations for this project in my intro post.
I’ve always loved the aesthetics of low-poly animal sketches, so I set out to see if I could recreate this in R.
Announcement! Announcing a new project: 12 Months of aRt! In this post I’ll explain what this project is, why I am doing it, and what I hope to accomplish. I’m currently rewatching 30 Rock, so enjoy this story as told by 30 Rock gifs.
What is aRt? The goal of this project is to use R to make generative or data-driven art. Each month I hope to explore a new idea or algorithm–my only requirement is that the primary purpose of the work is creative, not functional 😉.
