Project: BBC Bloom Flower Tool
Originally commissioned by MagneticNorth
for the BBC Climate Change Website
, this tool was used by their designers to create living virtual flowers that acted
as rewards to online users who committed to various environmental challenges / goals
Both the BBC and Magnetic North have been kind enough to allow me to put this tool online to play with!
Images of example flowers produced with this tool are here

All flowers are based on an XML template. From this template the computer generates endless variations. The piece starts with a default template.
Click "Draw new variation" to see another different flower drawn from this template.
If you are experienced in XML, by clicking "Show XML" you can see / edit the template XML.
An example XML file containing documentation is here
Note, commercial use of this tool is forbidden, and it is supplied 'as is'
