Gum Painting Generator


This site was created to help imagine new ideas for a series of gum paintings.
Early paintings in this series were based on patterns of chewing gum stuck to real-life sidewalks. As the series progressed, it became necessary to explore other means of arriving at imagery, in this case through computation.

This JavaScript program uses random numbers to choose the colour, shape, and placement of "gum". It is highly unlikely that it will ever produce the same compositon twice.

Please feel free to make your own gum paintings based on images generated by this site. Paintings in this series should measure 24"x24" and may be constructed from any material.

Accurate representation of colour is paramount.
