projects : 10,000 LEDs flashing at random

Nature is all about mathematics, and so is life.

Mathematical formulae such as the Fibbonaci Sequence and the Golden Section inform the growth patterns of many plants and animals. These patterns create the beauty around us.

The order which informs these patterns is based in Chaos. Mathematics in its purest form is random, and that is beautiful.

Particles of matter are created at random and from nature's random quality come patterns and order. An example of this can be seen in the various forms of life on earth. We all exist due to these random genetic mutations.

To capture this idea of beauty out of chaos the proposed piece fuses technology and random mathematics to create an organic work which embodies one quality which makes life worth living, which is that you never know what's going to happen next, even if it's dull.
