Asemic Illustration I

Uninterpretable technical diagrams in the asemic writing tradition. This is a place and test algorithm using four geometric objects. The point source object, a randomly placed position from which everything manifests. The arc, a curved line with a centroid around some point source object. The radiant, a straight line that originates on an arc and…

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…

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…

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…

Head Explode

Head explode, get new head. These images are created from a long exposure particle scattering machine. New particles are randomly positioned inside the perfect circle. There is a break, whereas a definable arc of the perimeter is allowed to loose fidelity into the void. The resulting pixel plot shows a brilliant object experiencing rapture and…

Venation

The veins below are composed of thousands of self-similar cells linked together. Randomly distributed hormone sources alert nearby cells of their location. The cell grows toward the source by instantiating new cells in that direction. In this fashion the vein system is generated. Final composition can be finely crafted through the careful selection of hormone…
