Fun with functions on WolframAlpha

Trying to plot some functions on WolframAlpha I stumbled upon this one.

 f(x,y) = (x2 + y2) * sin( 1 / (x2 + y2) ) 

It creates some nice apparently not-fully symmetric contour plot, such as this one [1]:

Here are two different views [2,3] on the function:


Seeing such images, always inspires me to start my own algorithmic fine arts projects.

[1] WolframAlpha plot of f(x,y) with -0.01 < x,y < 0.01
[2] WolframAlpha plot of f(x,y) with -1 < x,y < 1
[3] WolframAlpha plot of f(x,y) with -0.5 < x,y < 0.5


PS: I will let you know, when I found the time for such procrastination.
