So continuing on the previous series of Spectrum Colors Arranged by Chance, after Ellsworth Kelly based on the 8 primary TV test colors, what would happen if I put more rules on the randomness?
I decided to build some more rules in the system. The colors now had to randomly chosen, but had to be positioned next to their original neighbors in the test graphic:
So cyan could follow yellow, or cyaan, or green. I started at the top left with a random color, and filled the image row after row, and every new square considered the square that was already placed before it, to the left and to the top:
predictably: a diagonal tendency emerged. Again; I made a 1000 versions, then selected the 10 I liked best. Some of these I chose for the extreme lack of different colors. Others because they reminded me of primitive Teletext art, and I began seeing roads with puddles in them, and faces of monsters and pinups.
