The fifth and last stage (so far) of The Purist 2, in which I try to combine the results of stages 2 and 3: As I said in the write-up for Stage 2, I weren’t at all happy with the results when I finished it. Even so, after some more successful experiments in stages 3 and 4, I needed more material to work with to contort and stimulate what I already had.
Once again, like in Stage 4, I wound up taking two different stabs at the task. The first part simply takes the hexagons from Stage 2 and subdivides them using fragments of shapes from Stage 3; the other half integrates the two stages’ end results better, and feels more like a true combination.
A note of clarification: I’m not just naming this experiment The Purist 2 to be mysterious—there is a Purist 1, it just hasn’t finished gestating in my mind. It is even more basic than this piece, perhaps even to the point of being insulting to the reader.
I do not know if it makes sense, if the concepts are even original, or if anybody would gain anything from reading it… If there turns out to be sufficient interest in The Purist 2, I will go on to make the prequel
