Ten patterns.
A rule : Ten lines, change colour.

Thus the drawing develops itself, swarms and proliferates, as does, around it, the megalopolis, like it, the drawing throws its creepers and tentacular arms, or agglutinates and coagulates in cores, masses, or spreads like a puddle, leaks like an oil flood...

The patterns that I use are based on shapes collected in the diversity of the shanghaiese architecture, simplified at its most : little roofs of shikumen in the lilongs, interlacing of the highways, geometric buildings of the 30's, slender shapes of the contemporary architecture seen on Pudong, rectangular forests in big compounds...

During one week, the expansion of those patterns, repeated by a random drawing process, echoes the immoderate expansion of the city that surrounds us.
