Fractal feedback stemmed from a personal fascination with chaos theory and the desire to deconstruct imagery into particles, in turn, reconfiguring imagery out of the old through a process of feedback loops. Participants pointed a webcam onto a screen where the image was displayed, and observed a fascinating infinite square hole develop. Beyond that there are many ways to obtain more detailed, and interesting patterns. By a combination of mirrors, cameras and live video editing, I was able to construct an infinite range of fractal patterns, seeded by a variety of external factors ie: seed pattern, humans, objects
It has been said that something as small as the flutter of a butterfly's wing can ultimately cause a typhoon halfway around the world - Chaos Theory
This project was exhibited in Baltan Laboratories during GLOW Festival Eindhoven, 2014, where I was given Carte Blanche in their studio space, I then continue to work for a number of months.
During my part-time residency at Baltan Laboratories I worked on various research looking at feedback loops, cybernetics, chemical visual, as well as providing technical assistance to others resident or visitors in need of technical adivise.
Images of installation control panel for visitor's, where they could interact with the seed of the fractal and then observe the infinite creation of their pattern.
