Random Walks: Paper Cycles

Random Processes

I posted the Minumental random walk drawing, and then I realized: I never posted the set of random walks I did for my MassArt thesis back in 2008. Well, let’s fix that oversight! Here is a gallery of the 10 random walks I created using 22″ x 22″ paper, a pencil and a spinner made out of the bottom of a cup, like so:

I start at the center of the paper, let the spinner spin, and then draw a line to where it points. Then I reposition the spinner to the new point, and spin again. I do this until the line intersect the edge of the paper, then I start back at the center.
Here are the 10 drawings I made in my thesis show:


And here’s a gallery of the individual pieces:
