The Emergence Project
The Emergence Project, 2008
Hyde Park Art Center, Chicago, IL
A collaboration with Daniel Sauter.

The Emergence Project is a software art installation exhibited at Hyde Park Art Center’s digital facade gallery from October 11 until December 31, 2008. The piece investigates how complex patterns arise out of a series of simple interactions, without apparent direction or plan. Rising from the actual as-it’s-happening discourse emanating out of the Chicago Humanities Festival, the presentations, performances, and panel discussions are captured, analyzed, and processed into visualizations that dynamically evolve from minute to minute. The generative artwork uses simple morphological rules to animate word clusters, based on linguistic proximity, similarity, and difference.
