Aggregate layers of abstraction remove every trace of systemic complexity to reveal a living surface. Structured form emerges from thousands of local interactions between autonomous elements. The TI installation is derived from Process 10:

Process 10
Position a circle at the center of a rectangular surface. Set its diameter to larger than the longest edge. Set the center of the circle as the origin for a large group of Element 1. When each element moves beyond the edge of the circle, move its position back to the origin. Draw a line from the centers of Elements that are touching. Set the value of the shortest possible line to white and the longest to black, with varying grays between.
