Nervous System

Orbicular Geode Puzzle


This jigsaw puzzle is inspired by the formation of agates, a colorful banded stone. Each puzzle is unique, emerging from a computer simulation that creates natural variations in the shape, pieces, and image. It's cut in a dense, maze-like pattern through pieces "grown" in a simulation of elastic rods. The edges grow and lengthen until they collide, pushing each other into contorted shapes. 

Each computer-generated image represents a slice of an algorithmic geode. Concentric layers of color radiate from the puzzle’s edge to fill the surface with a pattern reminiscent of agate. Each band exhibits slight changes in growth rate, color, and character, resulting in a unique design.
