ARTERIA editions are created by autonomous agents which are drawing paths following a set of rules.
Artéria means artery in Old Occitan, a Romance language spoken in the south of France.
Agents have a default behavior: they go straight ahead, have children, die when they meet the trajectory of another agent...
The system starts with dozens of random initial parameters: recursion level, agents position and size, colors, birth angle and distribution... The possibilities are endless.
Finally, some local rules can be applied (ex: all the agents in the upper half rotate slowly).
The output is the result of the initial parameters, interactions between agents and local rules.
ARTERIA is the most complex and varied series I have created so far.
My goal was to experiment playing with an algorithm that can generate a huge variety then tame and modulate it with local rules. In other words, control the chaos enough to create meaning and emotion.
I wrote an article about the project: https://immutablecollective.art/writing/arteria-making-of/
