Is this a fractal or not? I’ve never done any box counting because the fractal dimension would seemingly be different for each value of phi. And I’m not sure how I would calculate its area as it overlaps itself, unlike typical space filling curves.
The Bezier curves give the image an organic feel compared to a purely orthogonal grid, but they were admittedly added as an afterthought and I could do a lot better with them.
The structure comes not from explicit procedures in code but from numbers that have inherent order.
My plots are deterministic, and use my “non-random number generator” based on the following formula. https://www.desmos.com/calculator/orxkgmveq3 … (Derived from the arc tangent between two points, normalized to 360 degrees to produce a number between zero and one)
I’ve begun a new series of plots that are a revival of an existing generative algorithm, with rounding by Bezier curves (programatically this time, not done in Inkscape as two previous images)
I like the single column design https://blog.joinmastodon.org/2019/06/mastodon-2.9/ @ashfurrow
