The author describes cavern synthesis--a simple computational recipe for creating digital simulations of caverns. This system is reminiscent of self-organizing systems, where large-scale patterns arise from simple rules operating on tiny components of a system. The artistic and unpredictable shapes should be of interest to artists and virtual-reality system programmers who create graphically rich, explorable three-dimensional worlds.
