Investigating the borders and similarities between computer-generated creations and living beings, this interactive installation allows participants to interact with and control arti?cial life forms with their smartphones.

 

Sodium acetate CH3COONa * 3H2O - sodium salt of acetic acid. When hydrated sodium acetate is heated gently, it melts. But it melts a little bit unusually: the hydrated salt dissolves in its own water of hydration. Upon cooling, the solution freezes turning into a white mass. Similarly to the ice, crystallization occurs which is accompanied by significant heat release. The presentation is completely live. A piece of sodium acetate crystal is added to a chilled solution of the same substance, and the process of crystallization will run in the vessel. The process is transmitted through a web-camera to a computer. The crystallization generates sound and graphics by a given algorithm. We are interested in the nature of both visual and audible self-organization, and in the way these two areas interact with each other in a system.
