The idea for this code evolved out of an accident and turned out to be something like a game conveying the experience of paranoia.,
To start it, you have to hover over the black bar in front of the eyes. After that eyes start appearing randomly around the screen and spongebob gets these typical pipe-like eyes that the animators use to symbolise him looking at something really closely. The pipe-like eyes are controlled by the movement of the mouse. I wanted to add an animation that is activated by a mouse click to end the small story line, but didn‘t have the time to program this unfortunately.


The first task was to try to recreate an artwork by Vera Molnár. The following is my attempt at interpreting her Hommage à Dürer.

Every time you run the script, it randomly generates these lines inside an invisible 5 x 5 grid.


In the following days I spent a lot of time playing around with different commands.

I was particularly intrigued by mouse tracking - making the code interactive - and the different commands and methods of generating a random output and its visualisation.

final idea

Out of these experiments came a code generating circles at random places on the canvas. When I added two circles to it that followed the mouse, I got the idea for my final project.
