A few years ago I wrote a little program to generate strange attractors based on a random seed. If I saw a result that I found interesting I saved the data as a 100k array of POV-Ray vectors. Nearly forgotten, the datasets then simply collected dust on my hard drive until I rediscovered them a couple of days ago and decided to actually do something with them.

Set against the backdrop of soothing music by Norway's Dimmu Borgir, this two minute video is the result of morphing 20 of my favorite strange attractor patterns into a sort of chaotic particle dance using POV-Ray 3.7 to interpolate and animate the various particle arrays. Enjoy!
