The fine, intricately patterned latticework of diatom frustules and radiolarian tests rates as one of many natural aesthetic wonders. However, how and why these structures come into being, and why they form the patterns that they do, is a whole topic in itself.

“SPORE is an ongoing software/aesthetic development project that has grown out of a proprietary ultra-high speed particle renderer which runs on Irix, Linux, and OSX. All the images on page 1 and 2 are stills from animations, and some of these stills are constructed with over 1 billion particles.”

very rare and very inspiring talk;
