I found this project to be really interesting because I found myself using functions that I had not used in the past. I decided in this project that I wanted to have contrasting sides where when something was happening to one side, the opposite was happening to the other. This is what ended up happening with the silver and red sides of the canvas. When one side expands, the other shrinks and vice versa. This is due to both mouseX and mouseY however each one has their own distinct properties. MouseX controls how the two sides behave while mouseY controls the speed at which they happen. This project helped me better understand how to have separate entities behave in similar yet contrary ways.
