Generative Art
Colorful Amoebas

In these unicellular creatures, line segments form an invisible skeleton. As the skeletal limbs move, the circles morph into pseudopods. As they pass over and through each other, their colors add together.

The Floater and the Brancher

The floater and the brancher are a complementary pair of cybernetic organisms, one composed of circles, the other of lines.

A composite animalcule composed entirely of line segments, with which it mimics its circular brethren in an endless series of combinations. This species is closely related to the brancher.
