Boggle was inspired by a series of OP Art paintings done by Victor Vasarely, called Vonal-Fèny. (c. 1975). Vasarely died in 1997 in the early days of computer art. I'm sure he would have embraced this medium. This is the forth in a series of Vasarely inspired Generative Art pieces I am offering.
I became interested in Victor Vasarely's graphic artworks while I was in art school. As I struggled to learn computer graphics I wondered how do I write a program to produce imagery with a similar aesthetic? I call the process of creating algorithms inspired by other artists: "Art"ificial Intelligence.
Brain Boggle is a multiple square arrangement of the original work. I was able to decipher Vasarely's painting into an algorithm and thereby generalize it. I can vary the number of points in each half of the square and I can rotate the square in 90 degree increments. I like putting the one of four rotational variations of the piece together in a 2x2 array. All the pointed shapes are one random color. To me the interactions between each section is more interesting than 4 instances at the same rotation angle.
The overall background is random, either a solid color or one of 4 types of linear gradients.
