Daniel Brown is a designer, coder and artist for commission that takes on a variety of projects. One of his jobs was to create a visual display for Selfridge’s in London. In his work called “Appliqué”, he made a fractal textile fabric with generative code. It’s randomized, and never repeats itself. It seems like the code would have a lot of recursive functions that calls itself in for-loops to establish the relationship from one part of the textile to the next. Daniel Brown was inspired by traditional embroidery heritage and working with fabrics and textiles, so his work was made to imitate the movement and texture of the fabric. You can see more of his work here.

Above are some shots of his display.
