Rotating grids generating complex patterns

Complex patterns generated from simple patterns.

Digital animation. 2015

This work is a an animation composed of overlapping identical grids of hexagons rotating relative to each other.
Simple algorithms make the patterns in the grids interact with each other so that, for instance, where black areas overlap they turn white.
The work is a relatively fast and dynamic work from the series. Others are slower and more meditative.

The work is from a series that explores the generation of complexity from simplicity.
