Recursive Drawing

Toby Schachman is the creator of a number of tools that let you explore and leverage computational power in interesting ways. One such tool, called recursive-drawing, lets you create recursive patterns. You will need a mouse to use this tool (it will not work on a tablet device). An instructional video showing the basics of the recursive-drawing tool can be found here.

Evolutionary – Patterns that change over time.
