WTF is this?

The images you see on this blog are output from various Ulam spiral generators I built in Flash, Python and most recently using Arduino. Generally, each dot in an image represents a number with integer 1 at center. In addition to writing algorithms to test each number for primality within a set I have discovered that an infinite number of calculations can be performed to create new designs and animation algorithms. The simplicity and speed of these algorithms make them an ideal fit for embedded systems graphics, scientific, mathematical and artistic explorations.

Connect the Prime Dots

Here's the basic algorithm: Starting with 1, cycle through all numbers and test each for prime. If the number is prime, connect a line from the last prime number to the current prime number. The particular map stops at 337.

Zooming out to prime #14033, I give you this:
