[erosion_table_study/test_2/results]
















with this study i sought to establish a process that could create diversity while remaining entirely self-similar. i constructed a lighted flood table out of white acrylic that would highlight the movement of water through the black sand upon the table. i used two different water sources for these tests and the path that the water took through the material on test number three created the top series of images that you can see above. in wanting to establish a control over this natural process i forced a symmetry onto the video footage and created patterns out of the previously untouched footage. through this forced symmetry the apparent randomness of the above footage dissipated and became more natural, establishing nearly organic characteristics.
