It makes sense to me – part of why I think many of us do cre

A picture is worth a thousand words

Learning to draw with a pencil made of code

My partner in crime, Simon Ashbery, has written a brilliant and in-depth series of blog posts on his research into the rendering techniques of Rasterization, Raytracing and Raymarching and how this relates to creating 3D fractals for our VR project, Fractus. A prototype for Fractus using Sebastian Lague’s open source code (, which Simon believes he in turn derived from code by Mikael Hvidtfeldt Christensen (
