generative 2

The kinetic output from these algorithms has a life expectancy exactly equal to the time you spend viewing them. During that life they will never repeat. When you leave and return a new life is born and that life will be unique. 

Recording a moment as a static outcome is the equivalent of photography (within the algorithm’s world). Recording the kinetic outcome, for a period of time, might be considered cinematography. In both cases, as the artist, I fulfil all the usual roles associated with those mediums (writer, actor, director, producer, casting, props, etc.). We might say the technical platform fulfils some of the actor role and that of the venue. So, when you view on your device, you provide the venue and the ability to act in concert with my script and direction.
