Today I coincidentally met @remony on my bus ride home. She motivated me to make my first post here.

Starting this year I found comfort in patching from time to time as an inspiring pastime.
This is my latest patch, an algorithmic interpretation of a spirograph. Basically it is modulating a circle with other circles oscillating in size at different frequencies.


I tried to make it accessible through an ImGui interface, to allow a playful interaction with it, without needing to know the specifics of the patch.

You can pause the animation by pressing space and reset the phase with escape.
