logistic landscapes

the logistic landscapes are a series of images captured from the logistic map bifurcation diagram. the diagram is generated as a sequence of vertical slices of the diagram rendered by a custom program for the purpose.

each vertical slice is 2,500 pixels wide by 50,000 pixels tall. the diagram fits on 200 of these vertical slices. the slices are then processed to build a representation which allows a viewer to zoom in and out and pan around in the composite image as if in a map app. explore the logistic map and built some tacit knowledge of its shape from this bifurcation diagram.

these images are landscape photography for math. the places exist in themselves, and I merely appreciate them and capture them through the lens of a computational telescope.
