Generative art

I recently discovered some really beautiful pieces of generative art on r/generative.

In the same spirit as a precedent article on glitch art, I want to share some of my favorites:

Artist @R1B2 also wrote a very interesting article on how he made his Minining Structures series using p5.js: Mining Structures walkthrough. I'd really love to see the JS code that he wrote!

This article is also an opportunity to test some very simple & efficient JS logic to lazy load videos, inspired by this article @ ottball.com:

document.addEventListener("DOMContentLoaded", () => {
  const videoObserver = new IntersectionObserver((entries, observer) => {
    entries.forEach((video) => {
      if (video.isIntersecting) {
        video.target.load();
        video.target.classList.remove("lazy");
        videoObserver.unobserve(video.target);
      }
    });
  });
  document.querySelectorAll("video.lazy").forEach((video) => videoObserver.observe(video));
});
