Generative Installation Evolves as Audio and Visual Influence Each Other
Universal Everything, a commercial studio blending design and art in the UK, has recently installed a beautiful piece in the John Madejski Garden at the Victoria & Albert Museum. Entitled ‘Forever,’ the installation consists of a large video wall displaying endless animations responding to an ever changing soundtrack.
Floating just above a pond in the middle of the garden, the installation is formed from generative music and generative visuals. Essentially, the visuals are being created by the music that’s being played and the music that’s being playing is also being influenced by the visuals. Got that?
What’s interesting about the piece, is how it evolves. Because of the generative design system at the heart of the installation, a unique blend audio-visual is displayed everyday. Apparently, itâ€™s based on the same kinds of micro-patterns as Mozartâ€™s generative minuets, but on a more detailed level.
