Untiled Faces

Interactive Sculpture, 2011. Keywords: faces of chaos, interactive, math, sculpture, software, sound

To comprehend a complex system, it is often necessary to understand both the details and the big picture, and to jump back and forth between those levels of abstraction.

This interactive sculpture allows the viewer to intuitively explore and experience a chaotic mathematical system. As the joysticks are moved, the imagery on the screens and accompanying sound provide feedback as to what is happening in the somewhat unpredictable four-dimensional parameter space.
