Schwarm by Andreas Nicolas Fischer

Andreas Nicolas Fischer has created a series of prints which present beautiful abstract generative forms. The series is called Schwarm and has been made using a custom software called "Swarm" which works in real time (see video into the post). It consists in a uniformly moving collection of particles moving over a surface leave behind overlapping traces which create an abstract composition. This results in a series of unique images, whose development is unpredictable. Made with Processing. See more;

The software uses a swarm of particles to gradually create an abstract composition based on a series of photographs. The drawing agents behave according to a set of rules, but have a degree of autonomy. Each time the software is being run it produces an infinite sequence of unique images over time.
