Errors are always defined […]

Self-organizing : System of Basic Behaviours

Self-organizing is a generative project I launched since 2017 September. The whole system is based on 4 basic behaviours – growth and death abstracted from DLA system, as well as repelling and attracting abstracted from Differential Growth. Behaviors are applied to particles according to density. It’s a hybrid system of basic behaviors, which produce diversified […]
