The intersection of two circles, generates a straight line, but if we change the relative position of the circles, the intersections can be used to create this:
Long time ago I needed to create a text message where the font was filled with icons.
The idea was quite simple, find a point over the text, and then expand a rectangle checking that the four corners are still overlapping the text.
Now I decide that is time to use bitmaps, and blendModes, to allow not only rectangles, but any other shape over our text, and this is the result.

My "actionscript school" years ago was levitated.net.
Since then, my favorite code is "Emotion.Fractal".

In this experiment with actionscript 3.0,
I'll be playing around with 100.000 to 300.000 particles at a time.
Create particles is really easy in actionscript, and I'm always doing lots of experiments with lots of sprites or movieClips, and then move then around.
But the problem is that it doesn't take long to have so many particles on the stage that Flash can no longer handle it.
In fact, depending on the code you use for interacting btween this particles, it really doesn't take that many Sprites on the stage at all for Flash to start falling apart.
