Form Randomized by Orbital Paths

 

On love, on grief, on every human thing,
Time sprinkles Lethe's water with his wing.

Form Driven by Parameterized Curves

 

excerpt from Auguries of Innocence

To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.

-William Blake

Form as Landscape & Architecture

 

excerpt from Sailing To Byzantium

An aged man is but a paltry thing,
A tattered coat upon a stick, unless
Soul clap its hands and sing, and louder sing
For every tatter in its mortal dress,
Nor is there singing school but studying
Monuments of its own magnificence;
And therefore I have sailed the seas and come
To the holy city of Byzantium.

-William Butler Yeats
