Will you or your lamps be at RAPID next week? I am planning on going, and would love to see these in person.Pssst! I wrote a book to help you quickly get your Sketchup models ready for printing. Click here to get it on Amazon
Very cool stuff. The seed lamp: it looks like two algorithms run at different scales (one for the large scale wrinkles, and another for the small scale porous structure). Presumably the large scale wrinkles algorithm run before the small scale algorithm?
I'm reminded of some 2d multiscale Turing patterns by Jonathan McCabe:
He runs algorithms at multiple different scales, but not in a fixed order. Instead, at each step it runs at the scale which has the least contrast, the aim being to make all scales have visual interest. He's got a paper about the algorithms here:
