Read the Poem

 

Anitype

It’s text with more life

Animation

Code in Java nation

 

Commands

Make lands

And loop bands

of information

 

The grid shows how,

Allows the constraints

to be put into place.

The coordinate system,

Intertwined like lace.

 

The S is the goal

So you need to control

How vertices interact.

Two.Commads.curve

Gives you a nice swerve

Keeps your letter intact.

Read the Explanation

 

This animation is coded so that letters can move. An “Anitype” is animated text – in this case, the letter ‘S’ In java script.

This code is authored by Sam Ticknor (my sister).

Variables: create lines and shapes using points on a grid.

The x and y values are the points to use.

Two.Commads.curve create arches instead of vertices.

Clone the previous sets of vertices so the path loops/wraps.

Code for animation using a time range from 0-1 second.
