I love seeing procedural art like this, doubly so when how its produced is described in this kind of detail.
These are very cool. One small thing I noticed for anyone playing along at home. The section on animation the author notes I found this neat technique but does not take the square root of the randomly generated number. As a result the distribution is more biased towards the center of the circle which is visible in the image following. Not that this takes away from their results.

This post links to another artist’s website, and it’s full of great articles on how to make generative art.
I want more things like this. Interaggregate and substrate were my two favorite screensavers!
What’s that processing thing they keep mentioning?
processing.org (and sibling project p5.js) - there’s a flavor of this that fits in a tweet, which might be what the author is referring to
