Peter Walker | Behind Closed Eyes

Last week I had a little time to explore some concepts similar to reaction diffusion. The exploration often yielded some wonderful feedback patterns that to me are reminiscent of the visual stimuli I used to experience more frequently as a child when closing my eyes.

This particular extrapolation brings about beautiful coral like structures, and with tweaking can invoke many wonderful forms, almost always psychedelic nature. 

Many thanks to Entagma (vimeo.com/170073061) who's recent reaction diffusion video bychance appeared in my feed on Monday, and gave me the idea to build this using Blur, Edge Detection and Feedback TOPs in TouchDesigner. The seeds are provided by low dimensional Perlin Noise, which has been one of my most valuable allies in creating generative scenes over the years. Tutorial and source coming soon.

Music: John 00 Fleming - Altered senses.
