The tiny island in Malaysia called Tioman Island is, by local mythology, called the island of the sleeping dragon. Such mythology is always a great source of inspiration for me.
Combining my generative Von Neumann engine with photos from my trip to Tioman in December 2005, the end result is a mash up of photography and mathematical numbers. This way of combining math with nature was always the intent when I started writing this generative engine. Now, having taken the first small steps, I hope to refine the engine and the process, so I can eventually create some really cool stuff.
P.S. Be sure to try and uncheck “Scale to fit” to see the pictures in their large 2560×1370 px resolution.
