What if you could capture, in one image, the entire “evolution” of a society or ecosystem? This concept is at the heart of my Society of Stickpeople prints.

An interactive program simulates various iconic stages of life – birth, play, love, work, rest, travel, and death – using simple finite state machines. By manipulating the rendering style of the program to resemble “digital chronophotography” (a virtual long-exposure photograph), I was able to generate a wide variety of evocative results. I chose these images out of nearly fifty runs of the simulation to develop into finished artworks.
