algorithmic modeling for Rhino


"I once saw an ant, trapped in its own trail. Each and every other ant following the one ahead. Pheromones laid to form a loop.A swarm, spinning again and again and again. Time passes, bodies accumulates, an exhausted army of ants marching over the dead ones. For their tiny minds its a straight path, a path which ends somewhere. But step after step, segment after segment the loop continues.

Hope,the light at the end of the tunnel, an illusion?

But when the last man stops,when the final warrior falls, the impossible happens. The 'endless' loop ends. No one to celebrate. No one to applaud.

A monument, a lemniscate, made of decapitated heads and exoskeletons remains."

Very interesting your work!
In line with the poetic content of it, an artist called "Charly García" wrote a phrase in a song that says, "while I watch the new wave, I'm already part of the sea."
