      Primitive is a Go (Programming Language) command-line app based on Roger Alsing's great work, that reproduces images using geometric primitives such as ovals, triangles and rectangles.


    1. Altered Qualia Evolve takes an input image and reproduces it using shapes of various colors and transparencies. It uses a simulated annealing-like optimization algorithm based on the great work of Roger Alsing.
    2. Inspired by Roger Alsing's great idea, Shapeme uses SDL to evolve images with simulated annealing.
