Buddhabrot

Buddhabrot

The Buddhabrot Set is a re-visualization of the familiar Mandelbrot Set using a technique invented by Melinda Green. Instead of selecting points on the real-complex plane, initial points are selected at random from the image region. The point is iterated through the function, z = zˆ2 + c, where z has components in both the […]

Concentric Paths

Concentric Paths

Concentric maze walking lines emanate from a central location alternating between ages of light and dark. Each path has a limited number of cycles through the machine. The path explodes into a tiny brilliant dot on its last cycle. A variation in which paths begin on a ring and emanate inward. Download Source Code Programmed […]

Vesica Piscis: You, Me, We

Vesica Piscis: You, Me, We

A meditative geometric construction of our relationship. This algorithm begins with two congruent circles labeled ‘you’ and ‘me’. The circle can be considered an individual’s entire perceptual awareness. As we become close, the intersection of our awareness is highlighted. This geometric construction is sometimes called the vesica piscis. Then complexity arises, as new ideas and […]

Node Garden 2020

Node Garden 2020

A darker, more contemplative return to the Node.Garden from 2004. 10,000 nodes are organized along snaking spine objects. The spines emanate from a computationally defined path. The path is a ring in some cases and a straight horizontal line. in others. The rendering process for this algorithm uses a multi-step approach. One by one, layers […]

Infinite Disintegration

Infinite Disintegration

We are like waves, rushing towards the shore, moment to moment made up of new matter. This particle generating system attempts to explore this idea. A familiar ring form exists in a cycle of emergence and dissipation. New particles emit on an ellipse in three dimensional space. A noise field guides the direction and speed […]

Ship Hull

Ship Hull

A combinatoric spaceship generator. This system takes the classic Asteroids delta shape and randomly adds primitive geometries to create unique spaceship designs. Each added shape is a circle, triangle, square, or line. Shapes are randomly translated, rotated, and scaled. Each shape reflects about the lateral axis for a symmetric appearance. This project was created in […]
