Images of Aggregation by Andy Lomas.
Lomas on his work:
These works come from a study of organic natural forms and their relationship to simple mathematical rules.
Influenced by the work of D’Arcy Thompson, Alan Turing and Ernst Haeckel, they study how intricate forms of plant and coral like structures can be created by digital simulation of flow and deposition.
The sculptural shapes are created by a process of accretion over time. They are gradually grown by simulating the paths of millions of particles randomly flowing in a field of forces. Over time they build on top of an initial simple seed surface to produce structures of immense complexity.

Acanthocephalans are pseudocoelomate parasites with spiny anterior proboscises for attachment to the gut wall of its host. These thorny headed worms have surprisingly complex life cycles that include many different intermediate hosts for both developmental and resting stages.
