Math Tiling Automata Morph

Press left/right arrow key, or use mouse wheel while mouse is on image.

anyone know the origin of this? or what's it about?

It seems to me, the creation process is to begin with 2 images. Then, morph a pattern between the two. In this case, the 2 images seems to be the same image, translated or rotated.

the starting/ending image are line patterns. Tilings, in this case. The automata-like patterns can be generated by bitmap image filters, or apply some sort of plasma map on the tiling. The plasma map can take n steps, in each step, n is a parameter, such as making it closer to one side. So, we get the illusion of movement or coherent morph.

Here is info about the picture.
