19.2 Visualizing structure

Examples of visualizing regularity and randomness: Revealing patterns and processes.

Organization of section: From regularity/order to irregularity/chaos.

Goal: Not developing artwork, but methods for creating visual objects.

However, we will realize that the dichotomy regularity vs. randomness quickly breaks down: Many seemingly chaotic processes obey laws that can be described and seen. Aesthetic experience of beauty involves a mix of regularity and randomness: order vs. chaos.
