Markus Schwehm: A Fast Algorithm for Creating Turing-McCabe Patterns. In: Bridges 2016, Pages 431–434.



A GPU algorithm can generate Turing-McCabe patterns significantly faster, and with more parametrized variety than previously described. After tying the algorithm to the user capture function of a Kinect, an interactive art installation and performance was created and shown in museums and art galleries in Ludwigshafen, Germany.
