Generating Oscillating Chemical Reactions

 

Spring 2011Through manual Rhinoceros modeling and Python scripting, this project models the fundamental feedback mechanism in oscillating chemical reactions, which is when one process proceeds until reaching a critical point, thereby kickstarting a second and  opposite process. Taking bounding boxes of various geometries as external stimulants, this system describes how a single object can grow in a spatial oscillating reaction, creating planar and structural patterns in the process.
