First Proof of Concept - Belousov–Zhabotinsky
I'm interested in novel ways to create and interact with visuals. Nature produces an astonishing array of designs and patterns. We hope to explore the possibilities of incorporating real-world phenomena as sources of Motion Graphics. I've been working with some Chemical Reaction-Diffusion Systems recently. I found a Auto-catalytic Self-oscillating 'chemical clock' known as the Belousov–Zhabotinsky reaction which ended up making some interesting patterns.
First in a series of investigations into using reaction-diffusion systems as seeds for live event visuals.
Arduino is an amazing microcontroller platform. Bridging the gap between software development and interacting with the physical world is really amazing. Jordan Sitkin and I made a very silly autonomous artbot.
Planning to ruggedize it a little add a springloaded stick of chalk to it and send it out into the streets!
