Fun with the square

Come Back

Same basic code as yesterday, but messed around with so that it's much less obvious that the underlying object is a regular octagon. No deep math, but fun nonetheless.

The code:

DynamicModule[{n = 8, k = 6, r, cols, verts},
 cols = RGBColor /@ {"#00ADB5", "#EEEEEE", "#FF5722", "#303841"};
  r = Cos[s];
  verts = 
   Table[(1 - r (-1)^(i + 1)) {Cos[2 π i/n - π (r + 1)/8], 
      Sin[2 π i/n - π (r + 1)/8]}, {i, 0, n - 1}];
  Graphics[{Thickness[.0075], CapForm["Round"], Opacity[.8], 
    Table[{Blend[cols[[;; 3]], 1 - Abs[11/5 t - 11/10]], 
      Line[{t verts[[i]] + (1 - t) RotateRight[verts, 3][[i]], 
        t RotateLeft[verts, k][[i]] + (1 - t) RotateLeft[verts, 
            k + 1][[i]]}]}, {i, 1, n - 1, 2}, {t, 1/12, 11/12, 
      1/12}]}, PlotRange -> 3, ImageSize -> 540, 
   Background -> cols[[4]]], {s, 0, π}]]

enter image description here - another post of yours has been selected for the Staff Picks group, congratulations !

We are happy to see you at the tops of the "Featured Contributor" board. Thank you for your wonderful contributions, and please keep them coming!

Something about this colour scheme feels very 80s, yet modern. I think you're on to something here...

@Daniel Lichtblau I had never heard of Auskiewicz before, but his stuff is very cool. Reminds me a little of a current artist I like quite a bit, dalek.

I have an advantage there, having grown up across the street from him.

That dalek work is quite nice. Given the geographical proximity I have to wonder if or to what extent he is familiar with Anuskiewicz: Richard has been featured at the Brooklyn Museum and the Whitney amongst (many) other places.
