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.
