99 Names of God — Final Project

GENERATING + EXPRESSING DATA     FINAL PROJECT PROPOSAL

CONCEPT:  99 names of Allah

For my final project, I would like to conceptualize the Quran by searching and extracting verses only by the 99 names or attributes of God mentioned in the Quran and creating an interactive art piece centered around them. I’d want it to be representative of Islamic art, which mainly consists of patterns and shapes, specifically formed via arabic calligraphy. Right now, my idea is that the resulting project would be an animated fractal (a mathematical shape consisting of shapes entirely like that) and you can zoom in to see the specific fractal which will be consisting of the verses that mention this name.

I’m also exploring the concept of fractals in my other class, the Code of Music.

 

Here is a link about coding fractals with examples so you can see what I’m going to try to go for: http://andrew-hoyer.com/experiments/fractals/
