Clockwork by zy0rg Clockwork by zy0rg
The never stopping gears of xaos machine.

My first attempt in fractal animation. Hope you like it.

Long exposure may harm your brain. :)

Very nice.
Is there a way to let the gears move along? (I guess their radius would need to change accordingly)

Good to know that my fractals can be used for educational purposes. Thanks for the info! :)

And btw math has always been fun. My input is minimal here. :D

Jaw-dropping. I have Xaos too, and I can't imagine how you did this.

I've made it with Apophysis, calculator and a bit of satanic magic. :D

Well, thank you! Today I discovered Apophysis. By "xaos" I thought you meant the Xaos fractal engine.

Yup, I've used Xaos some while ago too. But here by "xaos" I meant the xaos from Apophysis.

Have fun with Apo! :)

OK, so I'm guessing that there's a cog centered at every local min (or max,) and that they are slightly off-center to allow the "stretching"... but what determines the number of teeth on each cog? I just can't wrap my brain around that--or how cool this is! Nicely done.

One central wheel was round and not "stretched". The rest are its copies aligned using polar coordinates in hyperbolic plane.
There are two kinds of wheels - 10-cog (rotating clockwise) and 8-cog (rotating counter-clockwise). 8-cog wheels are actually also "copied" from 10-cog ones.

...But actually the picture is not as complex as it may seem. :D

Thanks for commenting!

Genius! Initially I thought only the outer gears are rotating. Outstanding! And the spiral shape is cute as well.

Thank you.

And yep, it's foci without overlapping areas. :)
I'm almost sure that I've seen similar trick somewhere in your gallery too...

Reply
:iconzy0rg:
zy0rg Featured By Owner May 24, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yup. that tut is quite useful. :)
I've used different "trick" to fill the foci though - transformed hypertile disc to gasket. And gaskets don't cause overlapping in foci/unpolar when aligned properly.
