Random design 37 – Mechanical flowers

A strange flower popped up on the wall of my “virtual’ gallery this morning!

Actually, this one is made of several reshuffled, recursive iterations of the same randomized minimal surface.

Random romanticism? Mathematical waterlily? Mathematics and randomness are full of unsung treasures.

Random design #28

Fractal – the opposite of random you would think.

Branches and seeds are evolving randomly from 1 to 300 in Seth Pipho’s very simple but elegant fractal script. The hardest part of my task this week was to choose which tree was looking best – they all did!

Random design #16

Different sizes and perspective of the same original sample of 2 and 6 neurons randomly communicating with each other. The blue tiles – 2 neurons communicating in 2 layers. The tan tiles, 6 neurons communicating in 6 layers.

Not much difference it seems, but there is a nice fractal dimension to it and it makes for a very orderly tiling too!

I guess I should thank Daniel Smilkov and Shan Carter for writing this script for TensorFlow. Good job!

Random design #8

Random and fractal.

An interesting combination if anything! Here, a random color spread on the honeycomb background, a fractalized texture on the spheres and the central frame dot pattern. Both originated in a quad-grid on the Bio7 program

Random design #4

Put 3 species in a cylinder, 1,000 units each. Throw the dice and check to see what happens after 3 seconds, space wise, quantity wise, and air-quality-wise. Little colored stars chatting with each other & networking?

Random design #3 – AI poetry

Random design #3

A Watercolor?

What are the chances of a robot seeing my work? Many. What are the chances of a robot showing me what it sees? Very few!

Thanks to the Deepdream team, I took my two previous work to their random algorithm – and this is what the AI saw.

I haven’t done watercolor in years! I didn’t know robots had watercolor dreams! I was so surprised I (almost) left it as is. I put actual image #1 in the background to show where the transformation started from.

Random design #2

What if?

What if I change last week’s squares to triangles and tweak a few parameters?

Same concept, same script, a very different form of randomness! The dynamic of the triangle shape and the recursive aspect of the calculation make for a lively combination!
