Great post by George Francis, in which he leverages the Voronoi tessellation to generate aesthetically pleasing random patterns.
When composing generative patterns, placing objects on a canvas purely at random can feel chaotic, while aligning them to a traditional grid can feel rigid/predictable. While both chaos and exacting precision can both be beautiful qualities in generative art, we rarely — if ever — find examples of either extreme in the natural world.
In this tutorial, we will be learning how to form aesthetically pleasing patterns inspired by nature. Random and unpredictable, yet efficient and harmonious. To do so, we will be using a classic generative tool, the Voronoi tessellation.
