This collaboration with Tony Robbin realizes his 3D quasicrystal artwork in a distributed graphics pc cluster based fully immersive system (Syzygy), such as the CUBE and CANVAS at the UIUC. This project continues previous work by Adam Harrell, who realized DeBruijn's first method projecting selected cells in a 6D lattice to 3D, and Mike Mangialardi's incomplete realization of DeBruijn's dual method in a Python script for Syzygy. Our project corrects errors in the previous projects and will provide a tool for Robbin to design new quasicrystal installations.
