It’s been about two decades since I built the original Design by Algorithm website, so I decided it’s time for an update. One of the major improvements is that it should be more responsive to various screen formats, such as phones and tablets. I’ve also added a store to the site. If you have suggestions for new features, please feel free to comment!
I recently became the proud owner of design #47, after admiring it for about 25 years. Any details regarding this piece would be appreciated.
Hi Pamela, One thing I remember about this piece is that I nicknamed it “family” because of the two larger objects (parents) and the three smaller ones (children). I assume you have the small sheet of paper on the back that displays the source code of the computer program that created it. If not, let me know and I’ll email it to you. It cites a journal paper that develops the math behind the image (S. Burns and J. Palmore, The Newton transform: an operational method for constructing integrals of dynamical systems, Physica D, Vol 37, pp 83-90, 1989). A particularly interesting aspect of this image is that the curved lines between colors all form perfect right angles at all intersections! Scott
