Generative Art: Heraldry

Generative Art: Heraldry

I’ve always been interested in technology at the intersection of art and code and Processing makes it very easy to play right in the middle of that intersection.

Generative art master, Joshua Davis, teaches a few online classes on Processing and the HYPE Framework which he authored and it's through that class that I dove into generative art for the first time.

The Heraldry project was started during that class. I was looking for interesting symbols and designs I could use for generative art pieces and stumbled across the incredible symbols and imagery associated with heraldry.

As a part of this project, I created all my own SVG artwork and used that to create the pieces shown below using heraldic symbols.
