Structure Synth
Nabla – Syntopia

Structure Synth is an application for creating complex three-dimensional structures using simple rule sets. Using a few line of code, with statements condensed to a few characters, iterated multiforms can be generated consisting of thousands of individual objects. Developed by Mikael Hvidtfeldt Christensen, this free software is a direct attempt to produce a 3d version of Context Free, featured on Dataisnature in a previous post. To whet your appetite for experimentation check out the Structure Synth Flickr group – Sublue has some fine examples of recursive structures and entropic cubes, Syntopia provides beautifully rendered curve iterations and architectural constructions. Things get even better for VVVV’ers as Vux has produced a Structure Synth plugin for our favourite video synthesis toolkit.
