Project 3
For your process (selected amongst LSystem, CA, RD), put together a brief presentation that has the following components:
 Origins of the process (what was it designed to model? who created it?)
 A concrete (simple) case to be able to show the rule and how it is applied to create the next step
 Some screencaptures of patterns resulting from these processes
 Survey its use in architectural design (inclusive of urban planning, product design, textiles etc)
Extra Credit
Take a random distribution of points in the plane , and apply a "relaxation" to these according to the following rule: move each point away from its nearest neighbor by an amount determined by a repel factor. See whether you can find a suitable repel factor such that the distribution of points converges to a uniform triangulation (such as what you produced in a topdown way in Project 1)
A similar process is applied to a mesh in the following example file, for which the rule is to move the point to the centroid of its nearest neighbors.
