Looking Outwards-02 Arula

This is a work by Alex Dragulescu. He created an algorithm that took apart computer viruses and identified their habits, grouping and growing tendencies, and patterns. Using these patterns, he created three dimensional forms. I like this work because it makes a computer virus seem like an actual mutated cell from a human virus. The floral, spiraling form  of the trojan virus pictured below has both beautiful and grotesque aspects to it, for a beautiful piece of code that is used for a grotesque purpose.
