the basics are what, we used software: maya and processing.  and photoshop?

and a piece of hardware that didn't really matter - a scanner to make a 2d image - of what, i don't remember.  actually i think it was a book on ben crawford's desk.

mapped (other term for mapped?) the image onto a really long, rectangular polygon mesh - with how many faces?

assigned simulated physical properties (meh) to the polygon mesh (definitely honey preset with tweaks)

"dropped" the pmesh - collided with surface "below"

made a camera with an aperture? of 2px x 2000ishpx

recorded the pmesh pile a fixed distance but revolving position around approximate center 180 deg.

broke mpeg into individual files.

reduced the width of each by half to 1px x 2000ishpx

arranged each file side by side to produce one seamless... picture.

the image size was some function of the spread of the pile
