Turing Patterns, Tessellations, & Tech

I’ll be one of the speakers at tonight’s “Arts, Culture, Tech, & Community” meetup at Artworks in Trenton.  (19 Everett Alley, Trenton, New Jersey, Wednesday, March 27, from 6:00-8:00pm).  This is a monthly gathering of people interested in discussing the uses of technology in art.  My talk, a brief 15-20 minutes or so, will be about how I use technology to help design my paintings.  I’ll share several different tools I’ve used to create Turing Patterns, how to play around with tessellations (repeating patterns that fill the plane), and other technologies I’ve used to make art.  Hope to see you there!  For more details, visit: Arts, Culture, Tech & Community Meetup on Facebook.

    Hi Bruce,

    Thanks for the links! Great timing on the Scientific American article. I’ve been reading both Kinetic Theory of Living Pattern and Fearful Symmetry (both pretty heavy duty, esp. the first one by Harrison). Both are 20 years old or so; Harrison suspected Reaction-Diffusion is a cause of patterns, Skewart/Golubitsky was skeptical, so it’s nice to see the research coming around towards Turing.
