The Scroll Art Museum

Scroll art lets beginner programmers turn loops and print() into animated ASCII art.

Torn Textile


Torn Textile came out of experiments to create a piece that looked like earthworm tunnels through dirt. The screen begins filled with text characters, while several "earthworms" randomly move left and right across the columns, deleting the text characters of the background. The background text reforms after a while, and the pattern caused by multiple earthworms moving across the columns created a look that seemed more like shredded cloth than dirt tunnels, so I changed the name and posted it.
