Turing drawings

A little while back I stumbled upon a fun generative art project by Maxime Chevalier called Turing drawings that produces 2D procedural art based on randomly generated Turing machines. The project’s code is in JavaScript using a HTML canvas which you can try online, just hit the random button to generate all sorts of weird and wonderful pieces. The project has inspired amongst other things a port to asm.js and a version with genetic recombination of URLs.

For fun I’ve created an F# script that generates Turing drawings that can be run online below via the embedded Cloud Tsunami IDE:

The Tsunami IDE also runs on the desktop and can be embedded into applications like Excel.

If you’re interested in learning more about generative art and trying similar ideas then why not pop down to Skills Matter on Thursday August 15th for a hands on coding session.
