Æxploration (Aesthetic Exploration) began as an internal artist’s tool used to create prints and animations from chaotic mathematical systems.

This interactive software, when placed in a gallery context, gives viewers a look behind the curtain and an experience of the tension between artist and computer, order and chaos, and control and lack thereof.
