Lemniscate of Mind Tomograph by pifactorial Lemniscate of Mind Tomograph by pifactorial
Most of the images I've uploaded so far are flattened versions of 3D objects called Riemann surfaces. This image is an attempt to visualize the 3D structure of one of my artworks (I still haven't gotten around to generating actual 3D models). This animation displays the 3D object represented by Lemniscate of Mind slice-by-slice as with an MRI.

I'm eager to go ahead and generate an actual 3D model of this, because I think it might make an interesting 3D-printed sculpture, a sort of lopsided self-intersecting cone thing. I'll upload it if and when I do! Also, more tomographs are on the way once I get back to California next week.

This is a great effect. It seems impossible to figure out the real 3D shape just from this (even after viewing the original shaded image of the surface), but I'm sure this still exposes something about the surface that it'd probably be hard to figure out even if you could see the real physical object. The Lemniscate shape at the end is really quite curious.
