Dancing Circles

Some time ago I was shown this video of ‘circles dancing in a rhomb’ by

Gelada   http://maxwelldemon.com/edmund-harriss/

http://vimeo.com/23772888

At the time it inspired me to create some interesting patterns with crochet, based around the negative space within the structures and the rhythmic dance of the circles within the shape.

But it was the cellular structure of plants that the video reminded me of most, cross sections of plant stems show similar patterning due to the negative spaces created by the vascular bundles, cork, cambium and pith.

The video below is a rough edit of a sort of conversation between Gelada’s computational realisation and forms found in nature and captured on my new microscope :)
