Ex Omnium Rerum Perturbatio Emergat Forma

The audio-visual reactive installation makes processes of sychronizations of coupled dynamical systems perceptible by the senses. The simulation obeys a nonlinear reaction-diffusion equation as used for the mathematical modelling of chemical oscillators. Such an undulatory behavior can be observed in biological cells, for example, where they control communication processes. An important special case is the brain which consists of coupled neurons whose activities are based on waxing and waning concentrations, too. A network of such oscillators, i.e. the union of many cells, leads to synchronization phenomena which are controlled by the specific coupling structure.

The concrete audio-visual implementation is reminiscent of the formation of waves and the sound of the sea. The ocean is a particularly attractive metaphor for the emergence of both life and "truth" - perhaps in form of a perilously act of nature like the allegory of Moby Dick.
