NAME

       interaggregate  -  Visualize  the momentary and aggregate intersections
       between slowly moving circles.

SYNOPSIS

       interaggregate  [-display  host:display.screen]   [-foreground   color]
       [-background  color]  [-num-circles disc count] [-growth-delay delayms]
       [-max-cycles maxr]  [-percent-orbits  percent]  [-base-orbits  percent]
       [-base-on-center] [-draw-centers] [-fps]

DESCRIPTION

       The   Intersection  Aggregate  is  a  fun  visualization  defining  the
       relationships between objects with Casey Reas, William Ngan, and Robert
       Hodgin. Commissioned for display at the Whitney Museum of American Art.

       A  surface  filled  with 100 medium to small sized circles. Each circle
       has a different size and direction, but moves at the  same  slow  rate.
       Display:

           A. The instantaneous intersections of the circles.
           B. The aggregate intersections of the circles.

OPTIONS

       interaggregate accepts the following options:

       -num-circles disc count (Default: 100)
               Number of slowly moving and growing discs  to  use.   The  more
               discs, the more CPU power.

       -growth-delay delayms (Default: 18000)
               Delay  in  ms  between drawing cycles.  More delay, slower (but
               smoother and less CPU intensive.)  art.

       -fps    Display the current frame rate and CPU load.

ENVIRONMENT

       DISPLAY to get the default host and display number.

       XENVIRONMENT
               to get the name of a resource file that  overrides  the  global
               resources stored in the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.

       BUGS

       Setting the background to anything besides black confuses the intensity
               algorithm and will look terrible.
