Artist Notes
This art work is based on the concept of emergence, a mathematical term used to describe the creation of complex behaviour from simple rules whereby randomness results in complex and attractive orderly structures. Emergence is often used to describe natural processes such as the behaviour of insects, weather patterns, the formation of cliffs and mountains and other complex phenomena. Using the emergence principle a custom written piece of software was developed that generates complex, mesmerizing visual and audio patterns. Starting from a plain red image it quickly evolves into a complex array of lines and shapes. These patterns are created by using a set of simple rules which are reapplied to the image and sound numerous times per second. During each of these iterations every pixel in the image is analysized and compared with its neighbours and the numerical value representing its colour is changed by applying basic mathematical computing functions such bit shifting, addition and subtraction. This would usually be expected to produce random, chaotic results with minimal aesthetic value. But instead visually appealing patterns that continually evolve and grow are produced with the program never reproducing the same image twice.
