The Scroll Art Museum

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



This piece shows vertical columns swapping places with each other, twisting around like bending bamboo poles. The twisting is an illusion: the program doesn't keep track of individual columns but reverts back to the same straight column state after each twist.

The twists aren't entirely random. The next twist is always adjacent to a previous twist.

This piece was created for a closing sequence in the Forbidden Zone music video.
