concepts & techniques
Stroke-dasharray and stroke-dashoffset are SVG properties that are incredibly fun to play with. They let you control and animate gaps along a given stroke path. I noticed that certain specific combinations of these properties appear to resonate into rather spectacular patterns that look surprisingly different from a plainly drawn curve. I re-implemented this in the Processing programming language in order to create frame-stable exportable renders.
Interpolation (aka Tweening aka Lerping) of the coordinates with their former selves (where they stood last frame) creates some very fluid animations that further distance their appearance from a plain old polar curve.
Noise. A bit of controlled randomness makes everything appear more organic.
