Class 4 notes

Here's the code we covered on Monday : http://www.droolcup.com/itp/imm/data/uploads/class4.zip

For Monday, I would like you to read the following : http://cmuems.com/2013/a/golan/09/02/melanie-nailed-it/

And here's your assignment :

Draw inspiration from the rule based art/wall drawings of Sol LeWit (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sol_LeWitt#Wall_drawings) to create a simple algorithm that animates over time based on a system of your design. Explicitly explain what this system is in your comments. Use functions, array, and loops as necessary.

Here are some example guidelines  :
