Patternbank our loving these generative art patterns created by Canberra artist Jonathan McCabe. Inspired by British mathematician Alan Turing’s theory of morphogenesis, where spots and stripes are a recurring motif in the animal world, these Turing patterns arise from initially random conditions. The space inflates and new pattern continually arises, informed by details of the older pattern. The patterns McCabe creates feel like a mix-up of camouflage and animal skins all merged into one pattern frenzy! Check out his flickr page for more mind-blowing work.
