Modelling Natural Patterns and Forms II: (Easter) Eggs
When you start with a portrait and search for a pure form, a clear volume, through successive eliminations, you arrive inevitably at the egg. Likewise, starting with the egg and following the same process in reverse, one finishes with the portrait. PABLO PICASSO Easter … Continue reading

Awk Programming II: Life in a Shell
The game of Life was invented in the ’70 by the prolific mathematician John H. Conway (see [5] for his biography). It becomes famous after Martin Gardner wrote about in his famous column in the Scientific American magazine [1,2].
