To recreate a Casey Reas piece, I first watched https://reas.com/compendium_lecture/ in order to understand the thought process behind his pieces. This is the reference I used. I found a great source through the p5.js reference page: https://p5js.org/examples/simulate-particles.html, which helped me grasp the main idea of this particle system.
Here is my sketch:
- Circular particle
- Movement of the particle with increasing speed
- Create connecting lines set distances apart
- Add array to have multiple particles moving with attached lines
- Add color
- Create drawing
