Word clouds are rather useless fancy and visually appealing plots, where words are plotted with different sizes according to their frequency in a corpus. Many applications exist out there (Wordle, ...
The question is how can we use Mathematica to create vectorized versions of low-resolution images? The goal is to get an image suitable for quality printing at any resolution. Since "true" ...
How to effectively create a polygon that looks like a realistic inkblot? So far, I could come up with this (borrowing from Ed Pegg Jr.'s Rorschach demonstration): ...
Yesterday the hedcut style was brought up in chat. How can we create a hedcut-like style automatically in Mathematica, using a photograph as a starting point? I am looking to create a similar ...
Here's some confetti: ...
I came across this image the other day: and liked the sensation of it pulsing. I was wondering if anyone would know how to create something similar with Mathematica (without the Pink Floyd Dark ...
I'm generating some 3D models of planetary nebulae and supernova remnants for Celestia, a free OpenGL astronomy software. Currently, I know how to do it with random points inside a spherical shell. ...
Well, the title is self-explanatory. What sorts of snowfall can we generate using Mathematica? There are two options I suggest to consider: 1) Continuous GIF animations with smallest possible number ...
In The Road to Reality there are plots of surfaces that use a variable density of dots to suggest curvature. You can see some examples here and here. I suppose they've been drawn by Penrose, but ...
This image comes from Michael Trott's Mathematica Guidebook for Programming. It's just a chapter image though, and he doesn't show the code. I was wondering what would be the best approach to ...
I have the following code which draws a graphic, and colors the regions in it different colors: ...
What I want to do is in any way produce a picture that looks like this Given a set of words, how can I partition a disk into bricks for these words, such that it looks good? Here is my sucky ...
Suppose we have a long list of random points (cartesian coordinates) in 3D space. coords := ...; Until now, I was associating colors in a radial way, from the ...
I'm trying to generate a spherical distribution of radial random walk points in 3D space. The following code works, but the random walk lines aren't radial. Why ? Where is my mistake ? ...
I'm creating 3D nebulae models for Celestia, a free OpenGL astronomy software. The following question is in part related to another one I already asked on this forum (see this question, for which I ...
