    Fascinating...

    Context Free generates fascinating images, using a small language for design grammars. These grammars are sets of non-deterministic rules to produce images. The images are surprisingly beautiful, often from very simple grammars.

    Some of the examples are quite ornate.

    A few of the patterns are slightly reminiscent of Spirograph, but considerably less deterministic!

    I loved my Spirograph as a kid. Without having looked at the "grammars" that drive this thing, I'd say the results are very reminiscent of fractals.

    Well a good hour or so were used up on Sunday. I managed a double spiral and some crazy weird grass like things that were quite spooky after an error in my spiral code. I was then kicked off the PC after Jezzarette 2 got hold of it and stated changing numbers in the code pad area.... Nice fun piece of software. I have just touched the tip of its capability so will carry on having a dabble <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>
