Another fantastic exploration in reflexive architecture, this time from Far Link.  His first machinima (well done!) is posted below, and his descriptive post can be found HERE.

Virtual Interactive Architectures: Emergent Forms – self organizing structures

“…I started thinking about how we could take advantage of the unique environmental characteristics of SL to create a self-organizing emergent structure. This structure might consist of numerous units that emerge from the landscape or objects within the landscape. These objects may be released when the avatar approaches an object or a specific place within the environment.

As these objects/agents/bots emerge, they approach and orbit the avatar(s). That is to say each object is scripted to approach and rotate around an avatar in an orbit of a certian diameter. Over time and within a certain distance of an avatar, these objects begin to grow an outer layer much like a seed begins to grow fruit.”

Just, WOW.

Avatar Far Link invites you to honor, with all your affective presence, the lucid and positive advent of a certain reign of the sensitive.

This manifestation of perceptive synthesis confirms Yves Klein’s pictorial quest for an ecstatic and immediately communicable emotion.
