Every 12 hours a rebirth; a 7 o’clock genesis.
This time piece features virtual flowers that were procedurally generated and animated by a system I’ve been developing in Processing the past few weeks. Each hour the flowers grow a bit and the clock shows a different seamless loop the embroidered animation. Every 12 hours (at 7am/pm) the blossoming flowers are released and the cycle of growth starts again.
Check out the links below for the clock showing the live time, as well as a demo applet I made that lets you click through each growing phase!
Here’s a few clips showing the interaction I was able to develop getting procedural swaying, flower collisions, and picking in Processing.
