Another take on visualising Cellular Automaton while reading the book Generative Art by Matt Pearson.

Cellular Automaton is a very tiny model used in various fields of study, particularly in Biology, to study structure of cells and how they react to neighbouring cells. Different rules dictate how these cells behave with respect to their neighbours. This interaction will cause patterns to emerge. The patterns are what I find interesting. Different interaction rules will generate different patterns. Very much in the same way if we are able to see all people from outer space on earth. Religious gatherings, sports etc. will show patterns of people converging.

*Incorrectly the image and video is titled "Cellular Automata" which refers to multiple cells while the visualization is in fact Cellular Automaton, singular.
