A vertical set of curves with slightly changing distance of lines, within small borders, and changed lenght of lines are building the basic pattern. On top reside the square hatchings. For those apply the following random elements:

  • Amount of set of straight lines
  • Position of each set of straight lines
  • Rotation of each set of straight lines
  • Amount of straight lines per set
  • Change of angle from line to line per set
  • Selection of drawing pen

[cf. Nake et al., 1966, p. 11]
