# Project 05 – Wallpaper

I thought it would be an interesting exercise to simplify the intricate orchid flower with code. It was a fun challenge determining the most essential shapes out of the organic form. After getting the basic shapes down on paper, I made a sketch in Illustrator, then translated it into p5.js coordinates to create a “tile.” I then used loops to create a wallpaper out of the original tile design.
