Interactive Installation - 2017
"Do you have the patience to wait
till your mud settles and the water is clear?
Can you remain unmoving,
till the right action arises by itself?”
- Lao Tzu - Tao Te Ching : Chapter 15"
On 2017, This artwork was presented at the Tehran Annual Digital Art Exhibition "TADAEX07" in Tehran, Iran.
Inspired by the following text, 'Patience:Sort' is an interactive installation that challenges the patience of the audience.
In this installation, each person who comes into the detection range, brings a shining point onto the screen, which emits dozens of curves in fast-paced disorder, reflecting the agitation of today's humanity's mind.
This chaotic pattern follows the position of the audience, until they decide to stand still and remain unmoving for a few minutes, to witness the decrease of speed as well as the regulation of curves and finally transforming into an ordered pattern like a concentric mandala at the center, to point at the importance of patience.
For the visuals, I developed a generative algorithm with Processing based on the position of the audience that are detected from a Microsoft's KinectV2 sensor. The title of the work is based on a computer algorithm used for sorting data.
