Random design #12

Monte Carlo simulation of a human TTR  injected with CuCl2. What more can I say? Nature is beautiful. Humans are part of nature – and quite beautiful too, even at the protein level!

Random design #11

Next to a Voronoi, a Delaunay triangulation is a dual graph of the same diagram. It is used for modeling and mapping randomness in 3D.

Apparently, It didn’t make for a very happy camper in this image. The spiral originated in a random set of hydrogen particles I triangulated on one side and used as a texture for the inverted dodecahedron on the left.

It kind of reminds me of a Tahitian Tiki wooden statue. Legends say that Tiki was the progenitor of humanity.  Hydrogen is the simplest known element in the universe. Did one lead to the other? Randomness in art can be unpredictable too.

Egg Voronoi?

Mathematicians have a good sense of humor, I hope. Linking points on an eggshell make for surprising Voronoi diagrams. The background is a random size and positioning of the particles I used to create the Voronoi tessellation.

Random design #9

Voronoi make for nice stain-glass window patterns. A Voronoi diagram is a partitioning of a plane into regions based on distance to point. When the points are set randomly – it creates unexpected shapes.

The object on the right side? An import from last week’s design. So many of you liked it, I felt I owed it to you! Thx for the support.
