Variability as Design Variable

In this exercise I was using Processing to help me explore visual system. Here creates a system that generates different compositions with four original images. Coding structure was provided by instructor Ian Bellomy, I need to change parameters and modify individual images/vector graphs in order to get a compelling system. The system generates different compositions as each mouse click.

The criteria for a compelling composition is that, while it attracts people to look at it, people can also look for a long time - finding interesting things in it. As to a successful system, what matters is max & min quality it produces, as well as consistency along different compositions.

Here are two exercises: one is using images of iPhone 5c as composition within content; the other one is an abstract one, my inspiration comes from the texture and lighting of stainless steel.
