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.
