Just got a Tektronix 2225.
I tried to achieve a Rutt-Etra look, but with ‘only’ Diver. I took
this patch as example, but used Diver instead of the VC and camera. And I didn’t use Navigator and Shapechanger.
Diver H+V into the oscilloscope X and Y.

It’s pretty chaotic but there is a nice sense of depth. Not sure if this officially qualifies as
the look but I think it’s a great result for this minimal setup
Looks great, excited to pick up a Diver soon and try the same!

I saw a link to this thread in a new post about the Vector Hack festival in October, they’re looking for works that include old displays. Maybe you’d be interested in submitting something.
