The Art of Life

Post by IgorCh » April 29th, 2011, 10:31 am

Hello All,

Thank you for the service you have provided. I wonder if there is a collection of artistic patterns created in Life and its generalisations? Most databases contain basic static and dynamic elements ("paints") but not the paintings. The aim is to have a realistic picture that is not reduced to many trivial still lives like ASCII-art, but rather represents a dynamic balance of larger building blocks.

In case it is of interest to anybody, here is a combination of a few strict still-life blocks and two simple oscillators:

x = 30, y = 30, rule = 23/3

Every artist has his niche, but I can tell you now that this is a scientific community, though a subforum might be created to accommodate this.

I really like the idea of all this, though, and that is pretty neat stuff.

Nice :)

Even though this is primarily a scientific community, I don't think it would hurt to add a "life-art" subforum. It might bring more activity to the community.
