Perlin Particle 02 sketch.
In perlinParticle02, it would generate three random images based on Perlin noise,and those three images would control the x, y, and speed of the particles. This version, doesn't use Perlin noise at all, but an image placed in the sketch folder.
When a particle is born, it grabs the color of the underlying image, then travels based on the RGB image data.
The first 10 seconds of the movie show the particle motion, and the last 10 seconds show the particle motion plus the source image (of my wonderful, and tolerant wife)
