RDEX at Piksel

Piksel

The 8th annual Piksel festival for Electronic Art and Technological Freedom is in full swing, lots of stuff going on with live performances, exhibitions, workshops, and presentations.

At 15:00 on Sunday 21st November 2010 at Studio USF, Bergen, Norway I'll be giving a presentation on the art and tech behind my project RDEX - covering aesthetics of higher dimensions, emergent behaviour, GPU programming for audio-visuals, using databases for image similarity, and so on.

RDEX (reaction-diffusion explorer) is an installation and performance piece that explores in an autonomous hyperspace mathematical model, searching for interesting emergent behaviour (life-alike, alife).

At 21:00 Sunday 21st November 2010 at Studio USF, Bergen, Norway is a night of live performances. RDEX for live audio-visual performance has a sequencer to choose 4D parameter points from the database, with the resulting evolving patterns converted to sound using a variant of wave-terrain synthesis.
