Beauty and Chaos Through Time and Space
On-line Internet & Gallery Installation, Dimensions Variable, 2001
Beauty and chaos is a multi-user environment bridging the realms of cyber space and physical space, composing music and generating image within a fixed geographical location based on user data from around the world in real-time.
In the gallery you will find a digital projection and a set of wall mounted stereo speakers. The screen is black and the speakers are silent, until it receives information from a website. This website features a multi-user drawing interface where people all around the world can draw at the same time – displaying their actions in real time. Every action made by any user on this website is sent as raw data to the gallery where it is processed by a computer. Based on this data, the computer composes a musical score and generates a constantly changing image.
