Art? Or data? V&A Pattern, Part 4

Here's the last installment on the recently published four volume V&A Pattern book.  The final volume is entitled Digital Pioneers and invites you to look at the work done by the visionary artists who joined together with scientists and programmers to explore the artistic potential of computer technology.  I've made this one fun by putting in two pictures from my own scientific work.  Can you guess which ones they are?  They all click to enlarge.
