This project was created to play with the new params feature on fxhash, making this the first fxparams project to go live. YYYSEED is an artwork with an aesthetic that works across digital, print and pen plotting mediums, leaning towards the minimalistic nature of drawing machines. SVGs can be exported for this purpose.

I've designed the algorithm to work best for this with the default settings, you should be good to go right out of the box. You can explore the design space a little further using the parameters (more details below).

If you're planning on plotting the work at larger sizes (A2, A1), then the "Override suggest lines" is there for you to cram more of them into the extra space.



Print size is 3:4 ratio


'h' - toggle high resolution 't' - Toggle paper background on/off
's' - save PNG file
1-6 - Save SVGs for plotting A1, A2, A3, A4, A5, A6


The high resolution image outputs at 8,192 x 8,192 pixels.

Print 27.31" x 36.41" at 300dpi Print 69.34cm x 92.47cm at 300dpi

Add ?forceWidth=xxxx where xxxx is the pixels size you want. For example to print at 100cm high, the width would need to be 100cm. 100cm in inches is 39.37" at 300dpi = 11,811 pixels width. So using ?forceWidth=11811 and downloading will give you an PNG large enough to be safely printed at 1 meter height.
