Generative Art that reacts to human movement and sound.

Algorithms and rule sets are the ground for generative art – Artistic creation often starts with a conscious choice of these rules, but isn’t limited to any medium, topic, technique or philosophical context. Questions of order and chaos are intrinsically linked to these rules and determine its philosophical proximity to complexity theory (Stephen Wolfram and others). Generative art is either outcome or process of an artistic production based on autonomous systems – thus excluding human spectator agency. Interactive art, on the contrary, is based on spectator-ship agency. Interactive art is per definition either the process or creative result of inter-subjective human art generation. In generative art rules create art, in interactive art the absence of rules defines human interaction.
