Art Futura Roma 2017


This installation grew out of an earlier installation by the same name created for Art Futura Montevideo in 2012 which was based on the work of Professor Michael Longo of the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor. He provided data on over 25,000 spiral galaxies for which he had identified spin direction.

I used the data incorporating it into algorithmically generated video, sometimes the viewer sees the raw data as streams of numbers, at others times myriads of galaxies appear to dance around the installation. The real locations of the galaxies in space have been used to place them inside the 'model space' of the virtual world.
