Order from chaos

4 minutes

A transfixing audiovisual dive into varieties of emergence

A collaboration between the UK-based electronic musician Max Cooper and the French motion graphics artist Maxime Causeret, Order from Chaos features an experimental soundtrack inspired by the concept of emergence accompanied by mesmerising representations of emergent systems, including the cooperation of simple cells, swarm behaviour and Alan Turing’s proposed mathematical theory of embryology. You can read more about the project on Max Cooper’s Vimeo page.
