Computational Forms

These projects (from 2010) were inspired by how neurons are born, grow, connect and migrate.  I was playing with balancing chaos and control.

These first two were generated using POV-Ray to create different types of branching structures.

This last one was about how we visualize microscopic entities.  If we want to find a particular cell, we might create a florescent molecule that binds to a receptor that only that cell has.   We aren’t visualizing the complete cell – just packets of tiny molecules.  Here I wrote a python script to create a ‘brush’ that draws by dropping tiny, semi-random shapes.
