I think REBOL as a language would be good for programming such stuff - it's just that View, VID & Draw would be slow for any graphic output. Working directly with images might be the fastest way to go for the visuals.

I've read the first half of Steven Wolfram's "A New Kind of Science" and that half's an interesting look at cellular automata, regardless of what else the book's trying to say. (If you've not heard of it, it's just a new theory of Life, the Universe and Everything. Warning: It's a heavy, as in if you drop it on your foot kind of book:)
