we were discussing recursive algorithms and chaos theory at work yesterday. when one of the chemistry professors brought up the lorenz attractor. he was trying to draw one on the white board for about 10 minutes until i decided it would be easier to draw in flash, lol!
after a quick conversation w/ andy zupko about the new Line3D object, and my new CanvasView3D component for papervision, i made a sweet lorenz attractor!
the algorithm is super simple:
x1 = x0 + h * a * (y0 - x0); y1 = y0 + h * (x0 * (b - z0) - y0); z1 = z0 + h * (x0 * y0 - c * z0);

so for anyone who dousnt know, the demoscene is a community of programmers, artists, and musicians, who come together and create amazing graphic visualizations for or coupled by music. (mr.doob explains) at this years assemby07 the evoflash team of bombsquad went crazy! their demo, entitled ADHDTV is amazing. They combine realtime fluid dynamics, with 3D computational physics, enviorment mapping, raycasting, phong shading, dynamic lighting, and shadowing... now that's some sexy math!

the versus project has begun! the idea is teaming up with another artist to create a collaborative piece of art. my first "opponent" is lil`spooky (aka anthony prusakowski), and we have been playing a 4 week long game of photoshop tennis that has yielded an awesome H.R. Giger-esque wallpaper we have entitled: "anatomy". enjoy!
