Lines is a real-time virtual dynamic sculpture by Dominic Pukallus. The visual output of the program is an illustration of the emergent complex
behaviour of a "flock" or "swarm" of thousands of coloured lines flying through
3D space, each obeying very simple rules. The values given which govern the lines' behaviour are derived from a formula
which is used in the computation of the Mandelbrot set. Watch for the
"Rainbow Serpent" effect.
To install Lines, simply unzip the dowloaded file and follow the instructions in the "Readme" file.
Depending on your Windows
system configuration there may need to be additional files downloaded and installed
for the application to work, however this should happen automatically.
