Quasicrystal Animation

Quasicrystals as sums of waves in the plane

This is so cool, and artsy as well; like a very complicated moving moirĂ© pattern (which is basically what it is, as far as I can tell). You can see lines emerging, similar to the effect of driving past an orchard with evenly-spaced trees, and glimpsing the far side when you hit a particular “order” of the structure, but there’s so much additional structure in the animation.
