The following is my concept breakdown for my final Openframeworks project. I really enjoyed working with the particle systems so I think I will continue with it. My vision is to create a flocking particle system that moves in the same spiral motion like a whirlpool. I'd also like to introduce variations in the movement and appearance controlled by a GUI.
Here are two precedents:
To achieve this, I will need to figure out the correct equation to change the velocity and force so that the particles spiral. Then I will need to use the GUI addon to generate sliders and link them to control different things in the drawing. Some of my ideas for sliders include:
- Changing the color range
- Reversing the motion of the spiral
- Expanding the width of the spiral
- Adding more particles to the system
