Processing: Digital harmonics

I’ve been having another play with Processing and a bit of simple maths. Ages ago I came across the works of John Whitney, and this rather hypnotic little Flash application. It always fascinated me how the dots went around their circlular paths and new patterns emerged, and I thought it’d be cool to make my own.

Watch the slightly hypnotic patterns emerge from basic circular motion. More hypnotic patterns and emergent behaviour from simple maths. This one creates pretty gemoetric patterns called Hypotrochiods
