ALGORITHMIC GROWTH, Reaction Diffusion n.1

This is the first post from the algorithmic growth series of objects, created through the process of generative design. These organic looking objects come from the backgoud of Allan Turing´s theory of the natural pattern creation. ¨This concept introduced by English mathematician Alan Turing in a 1952 paper titled “The Chemical Basis of Morphogenesis” which describes how patterns in nature, such as stripes and spots, can arise naturally and autonomously from a homogeneous, uniform state. / The original theory, a reaction–diffusion theory of morphogenesis, has served as an important model in theoretical biology. / Turing proposed a model wherein two homogeneously distributed substances (P and S) interact to produce stable patterns during morphogenesis. These patterns represent regional differences in the concentrations of the two substances.¨ (Wikipedia)

I used this theoretical models in modeling software, to create organic patterns applied at the mathematical model of the relaxed elastic membrane created among 3 points and the circle abow them. The object created by this formula is yet another example of the naturally created geometry.
