The works explore the image making ability of complex systems through a series of exercises targeted at analyzing and leveraging behaviors expressed through color and mechanical precedents. An analysis of physical relationships in early industrial automatons and machines to produce logics for the organization of material in a multi-agent systems. An exploration of color relationships in Dutch still life painting, was then integrated into the previously established mechanical systems as new behaviors. The ambition of the exercise is to explore the ability of complex systems to create visual coherence and difference while avoiding totalizing patterns, and to expose students to the potentials of scripted logic and complexity theory.
