COILING 2 is an experiment in weaving color to create an orbiting sphere. Each sphere grows from a randomized initial condition. The coiling then continues to expand from 256 different rules of growth, building up each sphere ring by ring. The weaving employs a cellular automata (CA) system to generate a sphere defined by a distribution of colored cells.
