architecture + design

[multi] AGENT

​in collaboration with: Matt Richardson

critic: roland snooks [kokkugia]



[multi]Agent was part of an intensive research investigation into naturally occuring swarm technologies. Our process focused on replicating and advancing observed and discovered swarm techniques through algorithmic strategies in a processing based language. Such that, we could begin to attribute new organization and spatial qualities that could be interpreted and analyzed across various scales. Our main objective was to develop a multi-agent system that navigates through a field of attractor points - that can either be positioned randomly, or as specific nodal points - as a way in which to transform a naturally occurring phenomenon into a networked system for architectural purposes.
