A new kind of harmonograph – one that is instantly gratifying yet constantly fascinating.
LineCircles was designed to be a solution to one of my biggest problems with harmonographs: you need to watch them draw to appreciate the final product, but watching them draw is kind of boring. I built LineCircles with a mind to have it be interesting to watch, require no user input, and produce attractive images.
I bring LineCircles up on my computer whenever I am doing something that requires my attention, but not my vision – things like telephone calls, listening to music, etc.
LineCircles was originally built with Processing, but from version 1.0 has been built using Unity.
