Andy Lomas' "Aggregations"

Andy Lomas: DLA fractal art
Andy Lomas makes computer simulations of things that look a little like limescale deposits in water-pipes ... but really pretty limescale deposits. They're another example of the DLA (Diffusion Limited Aggregation) fractals mentioned earlier (like my iced-up fridge!), but his are computer-simulated at extremely high resolution, and can contain between around fifty to a hundred million individual particles.

More unusually, he's also done high-resolution plots of the tracks that particles took to reach those points, which gives a sort of inverse "ferny"-looking or lichen-like pattern. You can see some of his "Images of Aggregation" and "Images of Flow" art on his website.
