further harmonograph tweaks

Continuing the theme of harmonographs, I tweaked one of the weights in my ‘back to basics’ harmonograph, and got this result:

Again, there were slight differences each time the cycle appeared, so this image would have had many more lines in it had I left the sketch to run for longer. In contrast to the previous version (see yesterday’s post), there is an additional ‘level’ becoming apparent in the image, which is an additional level of complexity that has resulted from a minor change in value of one variable (from 0.005 to 0.01).

Making the two weights close in value gave rise to a simpler image:

Again, there is slight variation on each cycle, so the image would have had more lines had it run for longer. I prefer it as it is, however, looking like a complicated knot in ribbon. The differening distances between lines gives it a graceful feel.
