Ben Lippmeier Talk

Tree Algorithm DemonstratedBen Leipmeier Talking at Dorkbot Canberra

Thanks to Ben for his talk last month covering his work with drawing algorithms and his research area of compilers in Computer Science at the ANU. Ben demonstrated a Lindenmayer system used for defining plant architecture. I came away wanting to look into the book “The Computational Beauty of Nature” by Gary William Flake and found this companion website which includes java applets from the book.
