Living Pixels

Living Pixels is a small art tool that uses cellular automata AI techniques to create a digital painter that will paint along with the player. Each color has its own behaviour once placed and pays attention to nearby pixels, based on sameness and number. The whole of it is largely an expansion of Conway's Game of Life. The piece advances on click, including clicks on the pallete.

You can play with the tool here (opens in a new window).
