Natural processes are computational at their very core, and like atoms, gravity, electricity, the sun, the moon, and the big bang, computation tells part of our cosmological story.
The “spaceplant” series expresses this “computational beauty of nature” (a phrase borrowed from Gary William Flake’s book of that title) through a lo-fi simulated garden. This garden has been grown by collecting, curating and nurturing algorithmic specimens that inhabit a space both cellular and planetary. A symphony of particle forces orchestrates the form and interaction of the simulation, tuned to cosmological constants by the artist.
