Adaptive Materiality: Ongoing Research Project on Material Systems Affordances

adaptive materiality 1

I have been working for the past seven months on a research project which was initiated during my postgraduate studies on exploring collective intelligence in regard with contemporary material systems. This research is looking into how form and matter is created and growing in natural systems, trying to translate this procedure into a computational approach using the dynamic and adaptive characteristics of swarm intelligence algorithms. Here is a video I made for my graduation thesis. The code was written in Processing.

I’ll try to post more stuff on this research in the future. Anyone interested in the process or the code please drop me a line.
