Design Your Own Sheep. While the screensaver is running, you can use the up (or down) arrow key to vote for the sheep you like (or not), and so influence the evolution of the flock.

Design Your Own Sheep

Furthermore, you can design your own sheep and post them into the gene pool. If your sheep are popular, they will interbreed with the rest of the flock and produce children. By mutating and crossing the genomes, variations of your sheep will appear and themselves evolve. To design your on sheep, Windows users can run Fr0st or Apophysis. Mac users run Oxidizer. There's a Sheep Edition of Apophysis that has exactly the right variations you'll need. For more information, see the Fr0st blog and the Sheep Design Tips on the wiki. After you've got a hang of the software and are ready to share, join the genetic design email list and ask for the password for connecting to the server. Electric sheep. Electric Sheep is a collaborative abstract artwork founded by Scott Draves.

It's run by thousands of people all over the world, and can be installed on any ordinary PC, Mac, Android, or iPad. When these computers "sleep", the Electric Sheep comes on and the computers communicate with each other by the internet to share the work of creating morphing abstract animations known as "sheep". Anyone watching one of these computers may vote for their favorite animations using the keyboard. The more popular sheep live longer and reproduce according to a genetic algorithm with mutation and cross-over. Hence the flock evolves to please its global audience. The result is a collective "android dream", blending man and machine to create an artificial lifeform.

The Wonderful World of 2D and 3D Fractal Geometry - Blog. Fractals are shapes that can be split into several parts and every part is a reduced size of the whole.

They usually have fine structures at arbitrarily small scales, being too irregular to be described in traditional Euclidean geometric language. Fractals have an infinite complexity and it’s almost impossible to reproduce such a complicated image. In the last decade fractals gained a lot of popularity, especially that now they can be generated with special software or created in other digital manners. For the ones who don’t own such software or haven’t learned how to use it yet, know that fractals can be quite easily found in nature too, and artistically expressed through photography. The following article presents 50 amazing fractal art pictures, expressed on 3 levels: 2D digital manipulations, 3D images and photography of natural fractals.
