What happened to the resources/Patterns category? Anyways . .
I originally worked with this idea two years ago. I've got an AVS preset that allows you to select the pattern AND select the color palette you wanted to use. It was huge and it got so complex I eventually lost interest. Now I'm revisiting the project since I have the advantage of using Processing
to do all the leg work. Previously, I was messing with vectors in Paint Shop Pro. Inspiration was ripped from Barcelona design group Lamosca
These patterns are produced by first designing a tile. Each tile is composed of arcs. Using some basic math, I work out how the arcs will line up once rotated. The tiles are then rotated, thus producing a interesting zeitgeist image. Color pallete "Karma and amore" provided by pich via Colour Lovers.
