The Fated Game of Life
Mathematics are in charge of the natural order of the world, and are often simplistic in their most basic nature. The mathematics that dictate nature have fascinated artists throughout history, and can therefore be classified as an art form. What kind of artwork is born from understanding the mathematics behind nature and channeling them? This project examines that question by studying and altering a classic algorithm known as the game of life; a set of simple rules that simulates the life and death of cells. By manipulating this algorithm to create many different cell behaviors, paint brushes are created, and paintings can be procedurally generated.
