Chaos Revenge

Inspired by the emerging behavior of a population of individuals interacting, reproducing, and evolving in complex systems (self-organization), this work was created via an artificial life environment.

Local dynamics are chaotic, but their evolution produces well-structured graphic patterns that evoke aspects of natural life, social interactions, and mind dynamics. Exploring this approach, the consciousness is revisited as the self-organization of many interacting chaotic fragments (filaments in the image). The evolutionary process is guided and selected by the artist so that the emerging graphic pattern is identified as a fragment of the artist's consciousness. At that moment, local chaos takes its revenge, producing new shapes, new organizations, new consciousness, and, naturally, new chaos.
