A grid of colors follows the evolution of a dynamic system (Lorenz Attractor): each initial condition (x,y,z) in the Lorenz Space matches the color tone (RGB space) of each square of the grid. Due to the ” sensitive dependence on the initial condition”, quickly the system evolves into (un)determined chaos.

This applet has been developed under the supervision of Laura Tedeschini Lalli and the help of Gian Marco Todesco in 1999 as an assignement for a super inspiring class at the school of architecture in Rome.

Sometimes the deep abstraction of mathematical knowledge can be unfolded by choosing another gaze… the other way around is true as well?
