About Implications

Animated

Interactive

Implications explores the symmetry of a chaotic system in motion. Each output contains a selection of geometric shapes that slide, twist, and resize over time. Their intersections divide the canvas into two regions, each with its own set of rules for generating mathematical textures. As predictable geometry and chaotic automata intersect and evolve, a variety of organic and artificial patterns emerge. Gradually, the colors and rules shift, and new forms appear. Through a series of carefully reflected changes, symmetry persists.

Each animation is constructed from large virtual pixels. By varying their scale, spacing, and alignment a variety of patterns are generated — ranging from a pixel art aesthetic to one with softer, larger-scale structures. Where does a tiny pixel end, and the emergent whole it’s a part of begin?

Building on the foundation laid in mono no aware and Zoologic, Implications continues the work of making the beautiful complexity of cellular automata visible and accessible. New techniques for optimization, color generation, and constraint selection -- along with simplifications to features and interactive controls -- place focus squarely on an endless and compelling animated experience.

Implications is a meditative work best experienced over the course of at least a few minutes. Put on some music, full-screen the live view, and enjoy the show! What sorts of symmetry do you see? What sorts of shapes and textures are there, and how do they move?

Aaron Boyarsky (aka ixnayokay) is an artist and software engineer who enjoys creating math art exploring chaos and dynamic systems -- with an eye toward engaging, psychedelic visuals. Some of his favorite subjects are fractals, cellular automata, and modeling natural processes such as evolution, population dynamics, and growth. He also enjoys digital photography, with a focus on landscapes and capturing "found math" in the natural world. He studied Computer Science and Math at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, VA (whose course on Cyber Art was a significant influence). Other influences include John Cage, Stephen Wolfram, and Douglas Hofstadter. Twitter: @ixnayokay Website: https://ixnayokay.art
