# PluriFormingCircles

For this week's Creative Code Challenge by @sableraph : ** Create a circle or a square in a new way,** Circles were reimagined through

*"PluriFormingCircles"*This week's languages are **Hydra, Livecodelab & SonicPi.** With an array of circles being made

**Creation of Circles**

Using

**LiveCodeLab,**I was able to code circles out of boxes(cubes) and balls(spheres)Hydra was used to overlay the circles and then aided by additional overlayed sketches. This was to symbolize the creation of the circles and how the Pluriforming transformation can be visualized

For the Audio, I remodified code that takes the area & circumference formulas for circles and sonifies them into a

**SonicPi Composition**

## Poem

```
Creation
Of these round entities
That seem to be always around
In either loops, plates
In many forms
Pluriforming them was not easy
Easy as a task but in the end
Able to transform into a new entity
imagination
That breathe
That reads
Birth from the concept
Of the seed
That has intercepted
Into an ability
To create
Replicate
Instate
These shapes shall blend
Will attend
The futuristic realms, they tend
As they shall make
```

### LiveCodeLab

```
turns = floor(time / 44) % 12
detail = 200 - ((time % 10) * 10)
speed = 3 - ((time % 40)/80)
if time % 10 < 5
ambientLight 255, 255, 255
scale 0.3
background black
rotate time / 5
detail times with i
rotate 0, 0, (2 * pi) / detail
move 2, 0, 0
rotate (turns * i * pi) / detail + (time * speed), 0, 0
fill red
box 1
detail times with i
rotate 0, 0, (2 * pi) / detail
move 2, 1, 2
rotate cos(Math.hypot((time % 7 + 1)/5,(time % 9 * 10))), Math.sqrt(sin(time + 4)), tan(Math.cbrt(time % 15))
fill color(time % 10 * 25, sin(wave(0.003) * 50))
box 1
detail times with i
rotate 0, 0, (2 * pi) / detail
move 4, 1, 4
rotate (turns * i * pi) / detail + (time * speed), 0, 0
ball sin(time), cos(time), tan(time)/2
fill orange
box 1
detail times with i
rotate 0, 0, (2 * pi) / detail
move 1,Math.sqrt(time %7+2),1
rotate sin(time),cos(time),sin(time % 6 + 1)
fill grey
box 1
```

### Hydra

```
s0.initScreen()
src(s0).repeat(()=> (time % 40 + 1)/4).colorama(()=> (time % 10 + 1)/4).kaleid([1,2,3,4,3,2,1]).blend(src(s0)).blend(src(s0).rotate(180)).out()
speed = 0.25
```

### SonicPi

```
