LeonardoWorx created a study using computational mathematics that focuses on the Iterative Method and how it connects to generative life.
The Concept

Connecting the iterative method to generative life shows how math and physics can be the key to explaining human life, perception, and the feelings we can not quantify.

The project seeks to go beyond time and space. This project started by developing code functions in Processing using Arrays and the "for" instruction.
The Production

Leonardo started coding in Processing which created 3D auto generative shapes using the iterative method. He selected 5 functions (5 DNA) that each had a 30 second range. He exported the functions in to a 3D software and started working on the colors selected by the emotive state they gave him. The final shape appears when the computer detects an unexpected life form.

Colors selected in sequence.
The unexpected life form works with a function that at a specific point, creates a heart shape.
The music was composed using "layers". Each layer is added as Allison starts calculating a new DNA.

By merging everything together, Leonardo believes that this algorithmic experiment (combining math and physics) can generate life and explain feelings we can not quantify, like love, that goes beyond time and space dimensions. The result is a colorful short animation that is directed by a computer (aka Allison) and updates the coder while unexpected things happens.

The four multi-colored artworks are a complement to the video and are linked together. Each complex module has been originated by running the function of "simpler" modules (respectively the orange, cyan, violet and yellow) in the iterative method.
