PART ONE | the task roulette:
GO WADING IN A RIVER. SKINNY DIP, IF YOU DARE.
- PUT FOOD COLOURING IN A VASE WITH CUT FLOWERS. SEE HOW LONG IT TAKES FOR THE BLOOM TO CHANGE COLOUR.
PART TWO | how I solved it:
+ 3 rows and 3 columns table with a cell of 6 units height and 6 units width; there is one unit space between each column and each row;
+ 8 units from the top edge, vertically centred.
+ Each cell of the base-grid represents one flower and is further divided into smaller cells of 2 units height and 2 units width arranged in 3 rows. However, from these 9 cells only 5 are actually used or considered for the task: the upper left and right, bottom left and right, and the one in the middle. (To mimic the shape of a bloom.)
+ The 9 bloom shapes give a total of 45 cells or flower petals; these were randomly numbered with a number from 1 to 45, using a random sequence generator at http://www.random.org.
+ Then, like in a bingo game one by one numbers were called out, and a cell with that number was marked out. The game went on until one of the nine blooms was entirely marked out.
+ FOR the drawing the given scheme was copied; all the marked out cells are painted black while the others are left blank/white.
PART THREE | few samples:
