[GIF] Come Back (Fun with the square)

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"};
 Manipulate[
  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}]]

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.
