Coalescence - A set of random events, colliding into a unified moment.
Coalescence is a continuation of research done in pieces like UltraWave and HashCrash. It researches how one simple algorithm can create as much perceivable complexity as possible, without too much interference of customized design rules. Like HashCrash, this piece doesn’t have any pre-made rarity features (except random backgrounds), but tries to represent the underlying randomness of the incoming hash-data as pure as possible.
The algorithm of this work represents 32 random input values as 2d coordinates and makes the interrelationship between these random vectors visible as multidimensional images. The images evoke a feeling of motion and space. The shapes reflect patterns we see in nature from galaxies to plants, from micro to macro.
Because this work is made for plotters, the piece is designed so it feels like it’s made by hand. Like a signature of an advanced creature living in hyperspace.
