Pretty new here, but have had stackexchange pop up enough on Google to know that this is probably the right place to ask this.
I've long been intimidated by anything procedural / generative, but have also admired a lot of it. Especially the kinetic stuff nowadays. Anyways - I've loved this Slint Spiderland generative art cover piece for a long time, and have always wondered....
How do you go about making something like that?
The closest reference I have is some Fractal stuff from AE...I know there's dedicated fractal software like Chaotica, Apophysis, etc - is that it? This looks a bit more random and organic though.
Is it best done in something like Processing or 3js? Or good old PS/IL/AE?
Really kind of unsure where to begin here but in general am very into this sort of chaotic yet organized type of thing and would love to be able to play with making my own one day.
Thanks for any help!
