Tribute to Steve Irwin, a guy who genuinely loved nature and animals.
This man was beyond real
My hero, in all honesty and sincerity
This project has started from a search for a 3d-objects optimal packing algorithm over a surface, but evolved in something rather different. I love the work by Richard Long, from which this project takes its cue. The way he fills lonely landscapes with arcaic stones patterns and its eroic artistic practice, in his monumental vision, is in strong contrast with this computational approach that – ironically – allows virtual stones creation and sorting in a non phisical, mental way, a ‘lazy’ version, so to speak. The virtual stones created from several fractal subdivision strategies, find their proper position within the circle, with a trial and error hierarchical algorythm. A mix of attractors and scalar fields (some with Perlin noise) drives the density and size of the stones. The code is a C++ console application that outputs a OBJ 3d file.

Ashy Faced owls, Tyto glaucops, commonly share similarities with common barn owls when considering behaviours such as hunting techniques and physical appearance such as size, proportions etc. Ashy Faced are found in the Caribbean on the islands of Hispaniola and Tortuga, and although other barn owls prefer habitats with open land, these generally inhabit more woodland and scrub areas. Through the invasion of the American Barn owl on the islands, the Ashy Faced is now having to compete for resources and nesting sites against their larger relatives.
