What do leopard spots, striped marine angelfish, and sand dune ripples have in common? Their patterns are self-organizing Turing systems! Discovered by Alan Turing in the 1950s, these repeating natural patterns can be created by the interaction of two things that spread at different speeds, one faster than the other.

I knew that name was familiar! Alan Turing is quite an interesting person. Wikipedia lists him as “a British mathematician, logician, cryptanalyst, philosopher, computer scientist, mathematical biologist, and marathon and ultra distance runner”! Furthermore, “Winston Churchill said that Turing made the single biggest contribution to Allied victory in the war against Nazi Germany” cracking codes! Read about him!

Curve descent pattern by Oleg Soroko

This series of prints I made during my experimentation with code. I used “Gradient descent” and “Marching Cubes” algorithms. First, I created a mesh in rhino with a script. Then render the model in 3ds max. Then a bit of color correction in Photoshop. In massive series i combine lines and isosurfaces. In minimal series i decided to show only isosurfaces.
