These carefully-patterned rock arrangements look like something out of a meditation garden, or environmental art. But they are actually the product of simple computer algorithms expressed through a 3D program.
Writes artist Giuseppe Randazzo:
This project has started from a search for a 3d-objects optimal packing algorithm over a surface, but evolved in something rather different. I love the work by Richard Long, the way he fills lonely landscapes with archaic stones patterns.
There is a kind of natural unnatural beauty to these images, which suggest one way that humans and machines share an aesthetic.
