Dynamic fractals – details – INTERACTION DESIGN

This post is also available in: Italian

Interactive installation to represent the aesthetic of complexity.

The project gives the users the possibility of manipulating fractals shapes, regulating variables that make up its structure, thanks to the movements of their bodies. In this way they can experiment physically the concept of complexity and intuitively understand the relationship between the change of parameters and the aesthetic result obtained.

The project is part of the experience of Aesthetic of Complexity workshop organized in collaboration with Museology for Design research unit.
