Clean Energy Haiku IV: Quantum Leap Haiku Illustration – Plan A

Steps in Illustrating Haiku: My original plan for computer-illustrating Haiku involved generating sets of large, medium and small shapes and placing them roughly in Golden section positions as the computer was generating the three lines of clean energy haiku.

The large and medium shapes could be geometric or organic and the small shapes would be in ‘groups’ which could be anything from spatters to groups of people.

Three colours (triad, analogous or split complimentary) would be applied.

When the haiku was printed and the basic diagram is in place, the computer would allow the user the option to adjust the whole picture - shift wavelengths, rotate, mirror, adjust individual shapes - duplicate, change brightness and intensity, expand or contract. Then it would present the option of automatic or manual contour drawing and edge effects.

This computerpainting, 'An inspirational ‘how to invent stuff’ non sequitur' is one of many possible abstract haiku illustrations that could result from this procedure… interesting, but not as inspiring a ‘launching’ point for a quantum leap as I’d thought it might be… Plan B coming soon.
