BITS – Anders Hoff’s Generative Algorithms

In ALL, BITS by Julia Krolik

“I’ve always been fascinated with patterns. It doesn’t really matter what kind of patterns; I’ve played with networks, leaves and leaf venation, branches, lightning, flocking, tracing outlines of shapes, river formation, rock sediments, landscapes, slime mold, lichens, reaction-diffusion, cellular automaton, some fractals and a few other things. I think what I enjoy the most is how complex and intricate results you can get from a set of simple rules.” – Anders Hoff

We are also fascinated with Hoff’s patterns and organic aesthetic. Here are some of our favourites below:
