Haeckel + Elementary CA

Digital images made by combining images of elementary cellular automata (generated using code written in Mathematica) with illustrations from Ernst Haeckel’s Kunstformen der Natur, scanned from an original copy by and used with the permission of Prof. Kurt Stüber. http://caliban.mpiz-koeln.mpg.de/haeckel/kunstformen/

Created by inverting the colour values of the Haeckel scans by using the black and white CA images as a mask. These images are made for print, and don’t reproduce well on screen. Click to view full size.
