Craig S. Kaplan: Aliasing Artifacts and Accidental Algorithmic Art. In: Bridges 2005. Pages 349–356



While developing a program to render Voronoi diagrams, I accidentally produced a strange and surprising image. The unexpected behaviour turned out to be caused by a combination of reasons from signal processing and computer architecture. I describe the process that led to the pattern, explain its structure, and display many of the wonderful designs that can be produced from this and related techniques.
