Sketches in Code: Randomness & Patterns in Science and Art

This thought-provoking experience explores the math and science that lies behind everyday patterns in nature. You can get a sneak preview by visiting Daybreak Labs in Livermore. It will also be shown at storefronts across the Tri-Valley in the upcoming months.

Sketches in Code was developed in partnership with the Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center. Using code to create art using mathematical formulas, organic artwork is created interactively and displayed on a monitor. The full interactive experience will premiere at the Bankhead Theater in Livermore in early 2021 and will include special events and workshops.
