Particles. They come in all sizes and shapes. They aggregate into complex structures. We ourselves are made of them, even as we exist as particles in a larger system. Particles can form simple swarms with simple behaviours. They can exist in a complex system with simple rules, generating complex behaviours. They can be active individuals and steadfast obstacles. They can wear disguises, and trick us into thinking they are something else.
Ever exploring the intersection of art and science, Kristin Henry lives in both worlds. In this session, Kristin will share her experiments with particles, graphs and the ideas behind them, including generative art inspired by chemistry and artistic rendering of the ip-addresses of spammers.
