This week, we have made great advance in two significant areas for printing algorithmic patterns: On one hand, working with mathematician Sara Billey, now we have a way to use cellular automata rules to generate codes for algorithmic patterns. I really appreciated learning from Sara more about the math behind this. It is inspiring to see how beautifully complex systems may be created from using a set of simple rules. On the other hand, we now have a method for turning the code into 3D forms and to apply it as texture on larger forms.
