Cellular Automata

This work is an example of 'live painting' (Java based applets as paint). These moving canvases are an extension of earlier works based in part on the 16 century mathematicians Truchet/ Douat whose work is reflected in my installations from 1994 to 2001. These digital canvases use applets as a sort of 'live paint'. Java code generates these images and appropriates 'cellular automata' algorithms based on the work of George Maydwell.
