Pausing the Zombie Formalist: Stripes Fixed!

The Zombie Formalist is taking a break from posting compositions to Twitter to create space for, amplify, and be in solidarity with black and indigenous people being facing death, violence and harassment as facilitated by white colonial systems.

I took this pause in generation to tweak the code that generates stripes. Now the offsets don’t cut off the stripes because they use the frequency to determine appropriate places to cut (troughs). The following image shows a random selection of images using the new code. This change replaced a lot of work-around code (blurring, padding, etc.) and resulted in opening up aesthetic variation that was not previously possible.
