Abstract

This paper describes an original, interdisciplinary model by which repeatless patterns can be generated dynamically in real time and streamed to a digital printer. The model produces designs that have a negligible probability of repeating. Their underlying structure is based on cellular automata, modeling traditional pattern design methods of arranging motifs or other design elements. The motifs within the pattern respond in real-time to each other, creating a composition of indefinite length. This is sent to a digital fabric printer as it is being generated, exploiting the technology in an entirely novel fashion.
