2D Reaction Diffusion Animation

For the most part this semester, I’ve been simulating reaction diffusion in processing, and today I stumbled across a really intriguing simulation which I wanted to save out as I think it demonstrates a few things about my project rather well. For starters, you can immediately see how the chemical diffuses and subsequently reacts with the particles in the system. Secondly, the wavefronts moving through the simulation can be seen and differentiated rather clearly from each other as bands of a similar lightness/darkness. Thirdly, I love the aesthetic that it produces, it rather closely resembles a CAT scan in my mind, and this is the aesthetic I will be working with moving into final bits and presentation next week.
