We wanted to create art using computer algorithms to inspire today's artists.

What it does

Selects from a list of algorithms and, using some user-provided parameters, creates some cool mathematical art.

How we built it

We used HTML/CSS/JS to create a lightweight webapp.

Challenges we ran into

We weren't too familiar with JavaScript and we didn't have experience with fractals.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

  • Dropdown menu to select certain options.
  • Creating a tree fractal with linear color interpolation.

What we learned

  • Fractals are a lot more complex than they look.
  • How to use the HTML5 Canvas feature.

What's next for ArtMath

  • More unique and cooler types of computer art.
  • Randomization of parameters.
  • Improved Mondrian algorithm.
