As I am currently researching on Delaunay Triangulation and Bezier Curves based tracing, I pulled back from a drawer this very nice library for Processing, known as the Plethora Project. It comes with a host of mathematical utilities, flocking behaviours and Bezier niceties. I just could not resist playing again with a few boids.
The atmosphere is resolutely marine, and I throw two populations of boids in the water. The blue ones drift away like blue bottle jelly fishes, while the tiny yellow ones embrace a brownian movement, small particles of plankton eventually flocking together.
I thought that would feel even nicer with a suitable marine soundtrack, borrowed from Eric Besson’s “Le Grand Bleu”.
