from Ancient Greek phýllon "leaf" and táxis"arrangement"
This animation is based on Daniel Shiffman tutorial on phyllotaxis. I modified the original code to mask a background image, and to change the parameters for the so-called divergence angle (according to mouse X position), and the size of the initial “seed”.
Here I used again the still from the movie The Shining as the background, and created several images, varying the parameter
c from 4 to 12, and finally uploading the images to Giphy.
How to run
PSunflower.pde in Processing. To play with other images, add them to the
data folder and change the code with
img = loadImage("model_1.png");
Use keyboard arrows to adjust the two main parameters of this composition: LEFT, RIGHT: Decreases/increases the size of the initial seeds. DOWN,UP: Decreases/increases the divergence angle (angle_0).
