    Attraction, Curves and Intersections: 4
    Project: Emergence and Navigating Space
    My final print was based on a grid of 70 images of outputs of my project. I produced over 250 high resolution iterations of the program, and did my best to narrow it down to some of my favorite images, and a slight range of images.

    What resulted is a piece that i am quite pleased with. As a recap, the piece is based on visualizing the Lorenz Attractor (a mathematical formula that is usually displayed with a few common constants). My program eliminated the commonly used constants and used random numbers instead. I also was able to trace the curve with an ellipse on a non-clearing background. The stroke color of the ellipse is based on the intersections it has. The curve visualization is complemented by ellipses that mark the points where the curve intersects with other curves in the environment (I am running 15 sets of variables per image, resulting in 15 different circles).

    Unfortunately, I was not able to figure out a different visualization for the intersections than the circles. I tried a number of things, but they did not look as visually appealing. I think the circles were sufficient, but there is always room for improvement and another visualization method could have been terrific in this regard.
