A Series of Accidents

Olivia Kung

A series of mesmerizing animations that change dynamically according to Perlin noise.



All of the animations presented were accidental. Multiple animations were created, but the outcomes never matched the intention. I created an animation (or many) every day for a couple of weeks using p5.js. Each animation was based off of the last and all of the animations used Perlin noise, which is a gradient noise or a more organic random form. From the series of accidental animations created, a select few were chosen in order to show a progression.

This is a visual piece, with no interaction. It is meant to be watched.
