Boids is an interactive drawing tool using autonomous agents. Instead of focussing on the general mass flocking pattern of boids, the project is interested in tracing individual movement instead as a way of mark-making. The tool makes use of set rules such as separation, alignment, cohesion, and following the mouse as ways to choreograph the drawing. Users can change the texture and path of the lines drawn by implementing each rule, hence creating their own pieces of art.
