Complexity from simplicity: 48 Interacting Disks

Abstract moving image.    June 2016

An abstract moving image work from a series in which multiple copies of a single shape move and interact using simple computer algorithms, creating complex shapes.
In this work forty-eight disks move in a circle creating strikingly different patterns and effects in the first and second halves of the work.
This work is from a series of animations exploring the generation of complexity from simplicity.
