Spike Solutions #3
Spike Solutions is a series of short, focused screen tests towards new generative compositing techniques. With number three, I'm starting to hit the Warhol-meets-Braque thing I was aiming for. #2, #1. Made with Processing, set to amazing antique synth tracks by Benge.

I have no idea what's going on but I like it.

Maybe I'm monomaniacal, but projects like yours remind me of Hitler's attempt to eradicate modernist art. It makes me feel good to see things that would have made his head pop.

This was fun, though the composition of your slices on the left are a bit unsatisfying. It would be nice to see them change as well, or at least not be so clunkily layered with the layers. By doing the uneven polygons thing you imply more of an intentional composition and it looks a bit dated, early 2000s modernism. Working out a way to either shift those dynamically would help (I'd recommend mirroring the grid, but I think that might come out as too static).

Something else I'd recommend is getting ahold of Speicus, who does experimental electronic music that uses iterative processes to compose. It's interesting stuff and would connect really well to this project.
