Artist Michael Sandstrom writes “My artwork explores how camouflaged political controls filter our understanding of history and relinquish our ability to accurately observe and respond to current socio-political events.”
You can get a similar effect to the patterned bunny with meshlab; you can even apply the process recursively which gives an interesting effect.
Thanks for linking the video from CD-adapco. I was surprised to hear him mention an open source code as a competitor. It seems like they’ve structured their licensing model to address scalability (he mentions an “unlimited parallel” model) where you’d expect an open source code to have an advantage. I like the brief bit on multi-disciplinary optimization. I always thought Hamming said it best: “the purpose of computation is insight, not numbers.”
