Random design #33

Do curves attract each other? Alejandro Baranek’s Surfer shuffle program that creates random algebraic surfaces seems to agree as all lines converge to create beautiful self-contained objects.

The law of attraction at work? I’ll call this one “The Kiss”. Reminds me of a Rodin sculpture somewhere.



Random design #25

The case of the random Lissajous.

A Lissajous curve is a parametric sinusoid that has application in physics and astronomy – and in art too! Max Ernst studied it, Hitchcock was intrigued by it (Vertigo).

And now, thanks to a script by Jacob Rus, I took it in this hypnotic pseudo-gothic setting. Curves also make for an intriguing new alphabet grid. It will be for linguists and archeologists to decide.
