Regenerative Pentagram in a Dodecahedron
The art explores the number 5, also known as the Pentad, diving into its fascinations of life and growth though the means of generative and procedural art forms to create a modest representation of its uniqueness in the form of a never-ending fractal, shapes and patterns which are created within itself, to show regenerative qualities the pentad shows in nature. The star shape, also known as Pentagram, shows the ability to reproduce and regenerate itself in a fractal like pattern through an experimental and generative medium.
The theme behind composition is to symbolise its infinite possibilities and the regenerative properties with great fascination in geometry and curiosity of code. This composition was created using a set of parameters onto a dodecahedron, which is a 12-plane solid with equal pentagonal faces, and visualize a regenerating pentagram evolving in a 3D space not through traditional animation but with transforming equations. It’s always an exciting moment to look at generated patterns, it’s an exhilarating feeling to watch the outcome and go back it iterate on it as the big picture starts coming together.
