Sculpture Garden

Rather than click on the buttons here you can visit the sculpture garden where there are galleries exhibiting examples of the patterns generated by applications on this site. If you search you should be able to find one showing images created using the algorithm on this page, see the image below.

If you find an image you like click on it (you must be close up) then you can copy the code displayed along side and use it to load the image into the viewer above. Now you can use the controls to zoom in and out or scroll about to explore that pattern in more detail. Or tinker with the parameters to explore similar patterns.
