One million cells are projected as individual pixels. The behaviors of the cells are manipulated by controllers, open for participants to play with particles and waves. Even though every cell influences only its immediate neighbors, complexity quickly emerges.
Local patterns slowly evolve and the global structure gives way, preserving the appearance, but parsing its parts. seli’s interactive cells make for a mesmerizing experience in biomimicry.
