“Turtle” visuals at Mindshare LA

I developed some new animations for September Mindshare at the old Stock Exchange in downtown LA, including “Turtle”– an experiment with creating complex structures by expanding on the concept of Turtle graphics. The left and right turn angles are variables and each turtle path is rotated and drawn multiple times to create rotational symmetry.

Once again the old stone walls of the Stock Exchange added a unique texture to the abstract shapes being projected. An IR camera on the stairs detected when people walked by which caused the internal parameters to evolve, altering the aesthetic.
