I'm an artist and I have been working with a set of shapes cut from a photograph. After a long time working with this image, I hoped to get some help from a programmer to move the work forward.
Essentially, I use a limited vocabulary of a few dozen images that I combine in new collages with each piece. I have certain tastes, combinations and preferences that I like to work with so I was hoping to have a program made that randomizes these shapes in a 2D space that I can start new work from.
The shapes cannot be turned from the angles they are in, but ideally would be moved randomly in an X/Y grid. I would like a randomizer that takes 10 or so of these shapes and puts them in random positions. I would like to be able to change the number of shapes used, how many times shapes can be repeated, and the dimensions of the grid or virtual space.
Apologies if I am using the wrong terminology here, I'm just getting started and I'm eager to learn. Any further questions please just ask.
