This is a Processing sketch that renders the Hénon Map, using the canonical parameter values a=1.4 and b=0.3. Instead of rendering points, it renders circles with the radius of the circle being proportional to the distance the point travelled from its previous position, and the colour depending on whether it travelled left or right.
The aesthetics owes a great deal to Jared Tarbell’s DeepLorenz rendering of the Lorenz strange attractor.
It is best viewed at high resolution so you can see more of the fractal behaviour of the strange attactor.
