This work explores gravitational fields and the elegant construction of simplified celestial bodies. Each planetary form is intertwined and connected and pull on the shifting debris floating in and out of the field of view. Through simple elegant manipulations, a user is able to shift the mass and impact of the structure, altering in minute ways the drawing that is presented.
The interactive work utilizes randomness and human interaction to bridge a collaboration between the computer and the user. I am searching for a way to access creativity outside of my own self. Utilizing randomness is almost akin to using artificial intelligence to guide the process of generation; in some ways it is more like the chaos of the universe, yet it still generates systems of order.
