This is a series of studies on procedural modeling using Python programming
language with Maya API. Appeared in unmistakably different images, all compositions are actually
generated based on the same data set of Federal Spending of the United States, where a set
of parameters defined the total amount and the percentage of different types of
geometric units. Custom algorithms were developed in order to create an organic
feel of the surfaces.
Over a hundred of compositions have been made. Included are a few example of this ongoing project.
