There’s rosemary, that’s for remembrance, pray you love, remember
This series was my first sustained attempt to make generative art using R. The code is distributed over two small R packages: the jasmines package contains helper functions that I used to create the art, and the rosemary package creates specific pieces. I chose the name “jasmines” for the engine because I like jasmine flowers and “Jasmine” is my middle name: I sometimes think of Jasmine as the version of me who pursues artistic rather than scientific endeavours. I chose the name “rosemary” not because I love rosemary bushes and I associate rosemary hedges with my mum who taught me to garden. Making generative artwork reminds me a lot of gardening. Mum died in September 2011, and writing this nine years later I still miss her terribly.
