Series 1 - Conclusions

The resulting specimens show a lot of variation.
The diagrams are also interesting. An element of interpretation of the pattern variables is required in drawing up the patterns, and then further interpretation in the making process.

Naturally, the 3D forms that have arisen are more organic and resemble creatures than the flat 2D ones. I need to gear the next series of experiments towards three dimensionality. One method would be to introduce modular forms into the randemiser.
The diagrams remind me of xray crystallography of DNA – they exhibit more of a pattern when viewed at a much reduced scale.
