In a Quantum Superposition between Art & Science

Swarm Light – rAndom International

This evening I discovered a project by rAndom International. Suddenly I loved it, simple and stunning. Like each true quality work it brings together different elements, in order to create sinergy in a way never seen before. A cubic array of LED lamps is transformed by software in a swarm of behavioural agents. I like this project because is a piece of design based on  feasible technology and a poetic work of art. The lights seem to come to life. Technology becomes  warmer  if it’s sophisticate enough to be perceived contiguous to existence.

(The software side of this piece is based on the famous work by Craig Reynolds about flocking behaviour. See an example in my work Aquarium)
