Converting experiments from older versions of ActionScript to AS3 can muddle the brain, but I had a lot of fun with this piece, which is just an update on one of Edwin's. ~Kristin
Author:Kristin Henry and Edwin Heijmen
Edwin's original piece was inspired by the art of Victor Vassarely. Computationally, it develops a color map and reflects it in the four quadrants of the stage. Edwin's code it beautiful. I've mangled it a bit, to convert it to AS3. As a learning exercise, it was very valuable to me. I've included Edwin's original code (commented out) on the first frame of the fla. I also played with using the circle shape, bitmapData object, and using mouse events on the stage with an external custom class.
