Tenacious, fast, precise – machines are a physical representation of humanity’s strive for a better version of itself. More often than not there is no room for errors and nothing is unpredictable. Computers are merely capable of simulating chaotic processes which occur naturally in our surroundings. However, it is possible to generate truly unpredictable signals through circuitry.
This object uses a modified synthesizer module that creates three unpredictable outputs which compose a symphony of chaos. Motors driven by this symphony move liquids in a synchronised array of petri dishes while lasers pointed into the liquids diffract into different, ever evolving chaotic patterns.
