### Algorithmic Art – A Fun Way to Introduce Algorithms to the World!

September 30, 2019 by Recursive Fashion

Clothing with algorithmic art has become a trend of today! Not just dress but also people are in love with accessories that have algorithmic print on it! From geometry, abstraction to trending patterns, the algorithmic art has influenced everyone, especially the younger generation.

But what is an algorithmic art all about? What makes it a trend today? Let us find out below –

Algorithmic art is the combination of mathematical reasoning and aesthetic sensibility that are two completely different parts of a brain and have no standard connection. Isn’t that fascinating? Pure algorithmic art is solely dependent upon algorithms without any input or random numbers.

What is an Algorithm?

An algorithm is a mathematical function that has the power to convert a pair of random numbers x and y coordinates which identify a location on the screen of a computer or a piece of paper into a single number which specifies a color.

To make the algorithms even more exciting, one can combine trigonometric functions such as sine and cosine, polynomials, and different other standard functions. Also, one may use more number of specialized functions as building blocks which can be further combined using addition and subtraction, multiplication, division, and compositions.

The resultant algorithm is always produced as real numbers which are then converted into colors using basic methods. Usually, there are two basic methods known. Those are as follows –
