Randomized Life Safari

On my flight home from Eyeo Festival this year, inspired as usual, I revisited a recent code sketch for creating randomized shapes to include a few new degrees of freedom.

The Random Shape generator can be played with interactively in a web browser by following the link above, but as I was going along I kept taking still image screen grabs as I twisted the shapes to look like birds, fauna, landscapes and other creatures.

At the end the series seemed rather like a slideshow from a safari to an odd digital world and I've collected some of my favorites below.

On a technical note, these are all drawn as layered 2D triangles, no 3D fanciness involved.
