Recursively grown, three dimensionally displayed, limbs of arbitrary size and distribution. A rotational structure houses a fixed number of movieclips, each holding a single instance of a recursive limb. This limb grows by creating instances of itself within itself, proportionally decreasing in size.

figure a. the structure is composed entirely of tinker toy like limbs

Viewing the structure is controlled using the horizontal position of the mouse. The further the mouse is to the side, the faster the structure spins in that direction. Pressing 'regenerate' creates a new arbitrarily assembled structure on top of the old one.


figure b. detail showing depth of field and perspective
Style and color subset adopted from the seriously heavy and fundamentally cool Praystation, from which I have drawn an unmeasurable amount of inspiration..
