Unless otherwise noted, all actions were created by Daniel Lefcourt, Associate Professor, Rhode Island School of Design. The reaction-diffusion actions are modifications of the Neil Blevins work, here. This project owes inspiration to Travess Smalley for his work with Photoshop actions and scripting; Clement Valla who introduced me to algorithmic thinking, generally; and Cheyney Thompson who introduced me to my first visual programming language – the Grasshopper plugin for Rhino3d.
