Contents and Illustrations
I wrote everything, took all the photos (except for uploaded twinkles, of course) and drew all the graphic elements, illustrations, and diagrams. Feedback about design is more than welcome!
I mostly work on Ubuntu, but also on a mac laptop.
I have some ideas of features to add to this website, like an easy way to order a print of your own twinkles. I’ll probably add other algorithms that will have different aesthetic products, and give you the chance to choose the new code and re-run the twinkle. Let me know if you have a good idea.
Mostly, I want to play around with the algorithms… the fact that such a simple, stupid random bit of math could make something that I like so much makes me think that with a little more care, I can generate some beautiful stuff.
Have an idea? Get in touch
I decided to share all of this stuff; the code for this very website is up on github. Some friends thought that I was “giving away my idea” but it’s such a simple idea that I’m not really worried about it. All I ask is that you share any experiments you make with this code.
