Broomsday Revisited

Filed under: Uncategorized — m759 @ 9:29 AM

Ivars Peterson in 2000 on a sort of conceptual art —

" Brill has tried out a variety of grid-scrambling transformations
to see what happens. Aesthetic sensibilities govern which
transformation to use, what size the rectangular grid should be,
and which iteration to look at, he says. 'Once a fruitful
transformation, rectangle size, and iteration number have been
found, the artist is in a position to create compelling imagery.' "

"Scrambled Grids," August 28, 2000

Or not.

If aesthetic sensibilities lead to a 23-cycle on a 4×6 grid, the results
may not be pretty —

From "Geometry of the 4×4 Square."
