If you've ever doubted the importance of symmetry to art, then have a play with this brilliant in-browser tool.
Created by Yuri Vishnevsky as an experiment in generative art, WeaveSilk (opens in new tab) allows you to weave lattices of light simply by dragging about your mouse. Every movement you make is mirrored with perfect symmetry, creating magical patterns with very little effort.
Use the simple controls in the left-hand corner of the screen to switch between colours and build up your illustration. You also have the option to switch between simple symmetry, four-way symmetry and no symmetry.
Weave Silk was built using the latest web technologies: HTML5, Canvas, Web Audio for music, and responsive sound effects. The frontend was written in Coffeescript with the backend written in Go. So if not's working in your browser, try it out in Chrome (opens in new tab).
