These images were generated using Automaton, a javascript application I created to explore 1-D cellular automata in the browser. Cellular automata are generated according to the following simple rule: a single cell in a row of cells looks at its neighbors to the left and right, and depending on their respective values, updates itself to reflect a new value. This process proceeds from left to right, and repeats itself when the end of the row is reached. Displaying each successive state as a new row reveals different patterns with interesting properties.
