Flocking Volumes

developed for David Tracy

Flocking Volumes is a exploration of agent based programming techniques to generate form.

Thousands of unique agents interact with one another in a 3D environment. Agents are controlled parametrically to adjust Cohesion (how much they stick together), Separation (how much they repel one another), and Alignment (how much they try to all go the same direction).

Since these variables tend to have inverse relationships with one another, I experimented with a custom GUI element to control the variables, a triangular interface.

Remote Presence was a personal project completed during my studies at the Interactive Telecommunications Program at NYU. I was responsible for all aspects of design and development.
