No drawing is required to create art on your 8-bit with Changing Patterns, from Los Angeles artist John Stewart. Use keyboard or joystick control to enter a set of parameters, then sit back and watch as the computer generates art. The generated art can be saved to disk or printed out - as either image or formula. The resulting images can be abstract, surreal, medieval, geometric, ornamental, woven, beaded, or in art nouveau style. Limited only by your imagination, Changing Patterns can create millions of images or decorative designs for use in crafts.
