Cellular Automata is a computer model designed to generate complexity from a base state, mimicking concepts in digital philosophy and theoretical biology. ‘Atom Aton’ takes these concepts and re-examines them in an aesthetic and conceptual framework. While traditional cellular automata generates binary separations, ‘Atom Aton’ works in spectrums. Rather than searching for stable systems based on the immediate surrounding area, ‘Atom Aton’ generates unstable systems through constantly changing connections between cells. The irreverence and chaos in programming gives way to images that generate their own rhythm and space in ways that can be neither predicted nor reproduced.
