Most of my computer generated artworks arise from visualizations of mathematical, physical or biological processes. I want to focus the viewer's attention on the complexity and intricacy underlying such processes.

This pattern is produced using a variant of a cellular automaton model due to Young for generating Turing patterns. Although toroidal, the pattern is produced by varying a density parameter in the horizontal direction while simultaneously employing two color gradients two emphasize the two different types of the cells that the automaton uses to actually form the pattern.
