The result of this residency under the title ‘Immersive Minimalism’ was the production of a 10-minute digital film ‘Always Dead and Alive’ in 8K and 4K resolution with 5.1 surround sound. The project investigates modes of perception through creating minimalistic video scenarios that challenge our awareness of time and space. By adapting Cellular Automata, a set of rules often used for simulations of patterns in nature and physical behaviours, the team combined research on the evolution of patterns in nature and self-organisation of forms with generative video. Surprisingly complex behaviours appear when all 33 Mio. pixels on screen become alive as individual interacting agents within a set network.
