Tree Animation, 1981

From the book Inversions, animated for video Watch Your Language, shown at Siggraph '96.
This animation was inspired by the film Space-filling Curves by Nelson Max, which features infinite zooms on self-similar recursive figures. Each E in the word TREE gives birth to two more smaller trees. A wall-sized version of this design can be seen at the Boston Museum of Science.
