Frax is an interactive fractal program that displays multiple moving fractal patterns. I find this project interesting because of the variety and complexity of the patterns. Each element looks to be considered thoroughly, and the options for fractal customization included seem to be done for the overall quality of the piece and not just to increase number of different features.



Matter – (excerpt) from Quayola on Vimeo.


Matter by Quayola is a generative pattern that expands and grows as time progresses. The element of movement within this piece was what originally caught my attention. Many generative patterns I have seen in the past have been finished products, so seeing the process of generation was fascinating to me.

Something I also found enjoyable was how the piece didn’t only include abstract forms, but every once in a while an organic shape would appear.
