A procedural algorithm designed to produce random geometric patterns.
I wanted to create an algorithm that would allow me to produce different random geometric patterns based on a rectangle.
The inspiration of how to go about it, came from the treemap type diagrams. I implemented a procedure in Houdini, that takes a rectangle and splits it vertically and then horizontally. The number of splits is randomly selected from a given max. The outcome is fed to the loop, again and again, depending on the number of user defined iterations. A seed value and slight alterations of the algorithm produce a variety of results.
