LifeCycle (2005)

Brief

Algorithmic paintings made from population simulations.

Description

Based upon the natural evolutionary patterns of population systems, LifeCycle is an autonomous and evolving video installation that creates abstract digital paintings in real-time. LifeCycle uses a collection of life-imitating computer algorithms to visualize the behaviours of a single population, which is guided by a set of rules, emphasizing various changes and trends (including size, growth, stability, and death). These factors stimulate the movement of virtual paintbrushes, sending flowing forms of bright colour across a screen-based canvas.
