Swarms, 2002

Software, Macintosh G4, Two Screens

Runs Continuously, Never Repeats

Edition of 3

Swarms presents one software program simultaneously across a broad window comprised of two 50-inch plasma monitors. The software shows the formation and dissolution of symmetric patterns as a metaphor for the temporality of our thoughts, ideas and actions. The process of gathering and dispersing patterns is continually reenacted by up to nine swarms forming a mesmerizing variety of compositions and color combinations that will never repeat.
