I wanted to make visualization for a while now. It’s a game of life that follows these rules:

  • The color of a cell averages the weighted distances of its neighbors’ colors to the target color
  • The weight of the neighbor’s ‘influence’ is proportional to distance of the cell to the target color
  • The target color changes over time
  • Every so often random ‘mutations’ occur: a tile flips its color

I spent the majority of the time on this project fiddling with the weights and the averaging function.
