Pixel Automata Image Effects

The "Pixel Automata Image Effects" experiment involves applying Wolfram's Elementary Cellular Automaton rules to generate effects on images. Inspired by Daniel Shiffman's Coding Challenge 179, this concept treats pixels as cells, where a state of 0 resets the pixel's color to white/clear, and a state of 1 retains its color.


Isolates are utilized to preprocess selected images, applying cellular automaton rules to each row of pixels, creating generations of cells matching the image's height. The experimentation also notes that some rules may not yield the desired effect, prompting further investigation.
