    Project: Emergence and Navigating Space
    the concept of emergence is somewhat self-referential in this program..... unable to work my brain around the base code (which is shamelessly borrowed from jared tarbell's 'box.fitting' example), i ended up just toying a little with the base code while trying to discover new ways to push the image to a different level. unfortunately, with my insufficient understanding of the base code (and coding in general), the extent to which the final image can be pushed is severely limited...and as a result i mostly only introduced new variables and functions to the base code instead of restructuring the code as to make it work the way i had intended. so at the end of the day the concept of emergence is slightly noticeable in the surfacing of the complex bubbly pattern, which was constructed on a visual basis as a simple program as a opposed to a highly sophisticated program with behavioral attributes and state-of-the-art collision detection.

    NOTE: recording the video either unexpectedly crashes the program, or sometimes causes the program to not run/respond at all. a series of screenshots and the original tablet in the web folder have been provided to compensate for the unexpectedness of this.
