    Concept Revisited
    Project: Design Media Arts at UCLA
    Conceptual:
    Nature is a place where one can release their inner energy
    It is an escape from the confines and rules of society

    There are two natures:
    1. Internal
    -The internal is always there
    -Tension is constantly being built up in this nature
    -Society makes it difficult externalize
    -In nature we are able to release

    2. External
    -This nature is calming
    -It is an open canvas for our energy
    -External nature is masked by society
    -All man made things are product of society —> these things hide nature

    For my piece, I aim to externalize this internal nature
    ===> creates a new level of external nature that is a mask on society

    Each persons experience would be unique to themselves
    The experience:
    Audio: arhythmical; ambient; distinct
    Visuals: projection of abstract and organic forms; growth and progression
    -example flight404

    Technical:
    Biometric measurements such as
    inferred

    pulse


    respiration

    motion





    This data will be interpreted using natural algorithms such as :
    Walframs cellular automata


    Conway's Game of Life
