Contemporary art and science – the creation of complexity from simplicity (Generative art)

contemporary art meets science - the creation of complexity from simplicity in generative art

The generation of complex forms from simple forms. Series begun 2008

This is a design to accompany a series of video animations that explore the creation of complex forms from simple forms (usually in the form of grids).
The works were first conceived as a device to visualise the creation of the complex structure that underlies the physical universe from extremely simple fundamental components.
Very much an example of art meets science.
