Interactive, generative application
Particles swarm around, creating intricate flower shapes that emerge like slow fireworks. When a flower is fully drawn, a path is drawn to a new point and the process begins over. As usual, the color scheme is subdued, in this case using black and pastel colors. It’s a nicely resolved piece, turning what seems like a limited geometry trick into a source of visual complexity.
Mira also features Lia’s signature control panel, a cryptic set of parameters for the user to play with without ever really knowing what they do. If in doubt, have patience. The flowers grow slowly, and feedback to a change in parameters will not be immediate.
