Complexification by Jared Tarbell

I’ve been a long-time fan of the super-talented Jared Tarbell’s Complexification site: a gorgeous display of computer algorithms developed for generative art creation.

Jared has a jaw-dropping number of striking pieces all developed with, the open-source flexible software sketchbook and language for learning how to code within the context of the visual arts.


Among Jared’s wonderful pieces is the Box Fitting applet which is so cool it inspired me to develop my own port for Adobe Photoshop.

Jared also has some more common CG experiments such as the Peter De Jong attractor and the Buddhabrot fractal, both of which I too have developed more complex versions of: Peter De Jong attractor & Buddhabrot.

I highly encourage everyone to take a look through his incredibly-creative and unique pieces!
