visual smorgasbord (instant psychedelia, just insert holomorphic functions here)

I've been playing around with seeing complex functions. This is nifty. As my sister said "ooh, pretty pictures"

prerequisites: access to unix system with gimp, ability to play with patterns
step 1: install the mathmap plugin
step 2: install Hans Lundmark's wrapper script in ~/.gimp-1.2/scripts
step 3: spend some time viewing various functions, so their poles and structure is impressed upon your visual imagination
step 4: turn on some techno music, interpose your hands between closed eyes an a sunbeam, and wave
them vigorously. (I suppose that such waving can be accomplished with a pair of motors and baffles too)
