Swarm


Interactive


Spring 2003

Swarms, consisting of independent agents, exhibit spontaneous expansive and contractive macro behavioral patterns. This interactive piece attempts to use swarm behavior as a device for generating auditory and visual patterns. Here, two or more agents that come in proximity of one-another, light up and exhibit a tone, each of which is unique. When the user taps one of the agents, the entire swarm contracts towards it, only to expand again once a critical mass has been reached.
