Art from geometry: geometry from art
All the utilities listed here are works in progress. I'm including them in their most current iterations so expect things to break. Be wary of pushing sliders too far to the right!I use these tools to continue to develop and explore particular geometric objects. Occasional visually intriguing outputs from these experiments form the basis of the art I make. New possibilities I see evolving in the art in turn informs my intuitions about how to continue to explore the geometry in code and mathematics.
None of these utilities are optimised for mobile display
Quasi Lamellar 2021Launch
This utility is used to explore the emergent wave interference patterns that appear from superimposing 2D quasicrystals. These quasicrystal are constructed using protofield primitives so there similar to quasicrystals that have undergone a inverse transformation.
Proto field engine 2020Launch
Animation utility that visualizes continuous offset harmonics. Fields are displayed as translucent layers that rotate and fade out progressively. Intriguing motions are revealed that are reminiscent of switching circuits or maybe cell division.
Quasicrystal (Collapse harmonics) 2019Launch
This type of quasicrystal has become a secondary primitive in my work. In themselves they are very complex and intriguing, but I'm increasingly combining these crystals to reveal further emergent wave interference patterns. Each crystal here however is a single structure and I'm using factor collapse harmonics to determine the frequency at each source.
Root factor harmonics 2019Launch
This relatively simple utility visualizes factor collapse harmonics in the contexts of square root(N) progression. I've also made a tentative attempt to create a corresponding audio harmonic for smaller values using the wave API. However, although I love electronic music, I am now sound artist.
Proto Field Constuction 101Launch
Proto Field Constuction (Extended degrees of freedom)Launch
Factor Collapse harmonics 2017Launch
Page and animation utility explaining the harmonic (factor collapsing) algorithm I use in other utilities to reveal symmetries and structures.
