Beautiful computer generated art by 3D & motion artist JR Schmidt, based in New York.
These images can be generated based on a script that first generates gravity fields, an action that can be input from the user, and then spawns particles that draw and change color as they move across the canvas.

Photograph of a holographic projection representing meta data in space as a form, by Anthony Dunne and Fiona Raby.
“Designers are increasingly faced with the problem of understanding and visualizing data-filled space and making it inhabitable. In their book Anthony Dunne and Fiona Raby, who conduct research in the field at the Royal College of Arts, speak of the electro-climate and the electro-geography – which can effect architecture just as the real climate can – and refer to it as »hertzian space.« The two designers think of electromagnetic fields full of data. But in times of geospatial data and location-based services data also assumes this wave field-like materiality. Are screens an appropriate medium for this? What is the form of these metadata?
Now that location-based metadata waft through the space, thereby redefining contexts and places, a new field opens up to designers: How will information be usefully integrated into the physical space? Inspired by the fictional illustrations by Ingeborg Marie Dehs Thomas, who interprets the spatial expansion of radio waves, we attempted to lend metadata a form. Using the light painting technique, we placed our idea of these data in a room, making it haptic. The resulting forms depict possible data sets and examine the design possibilities between technoid holograms and personal notes.”, by Weave Magazine – Immaterials – The form of meta data, 2011

Fall-Off table by Sam Stringleman / The desk’s unique design is generated by computer software where the surface density is defined by the placement of objects on a virtual web interface table.
As a virtual object, for example a laptop or coffee cup, is moved around on the table, the epicenter of the structure follows. The surrounding density is controllable through a digital falloff, based on a Voronoi pattern, which is a mathematical way of dividing a space into a number of regions.
