Mycelium [Processing]


Mycelium is a simulation of fungal hyphae growth using images as food, created by Ryan Alexander. The project originally started in 2005 while he was working at Logan in Venice, California.

Hyphae(菌絲) grow into the lighter areas of the image while avoiding their own trails. Branching and growth speed are also functions of the avalible food (brightness) in the image. Type can be added by splitting the trails up into phrase-sized chunks(塊) of different colors. Each color is then stroked with text in Adobe Illustrator.

Created with Processing. For more images, see this flickr pool.
