stringlets galore

this piece started in 2004, and made progress in leaps and bounds ever since. now i am close to where i want to bring it

as it is now, it is a metaphor for the geography of space and its occupation (or the earth, and its human population, or else...). it is an amazing maze at 6x3ft. above: the whole piece, and a 3x2in. detail

the rule-based generation is computationally intensive and the file produced is large enough that printing it is not trivial

the software still needs some adjustments. so the current state is not final

i have a plan for one or two short series, each series with its specific set of rules, and each piece in the series with its own color variation. but in the longer term the concept and the code present a wealth of possibilities

i thought that were a musician to give the example in public of doing the impossible that it would inspire someone who was struck by that performance to change the world, to improve it.
