This generative art work is heavily influenced by Karl Sims' "Genetic Images" (1993).
A composite mathematical function made from sines, Heaviside step functions, multiplies, and additions translates the three dimensional information of position and time at each pixel to a point in the three dimensional red-green-blue color-space.
The function includes discontinuities which shatter the smooth surface into shards.
The function is found through a process of artificial evolution where the value of another function of the resulting image is maximized.
