The Consequence of Scale

Info

The movement of the grids is determined by many factors, most notably Perlin Noise, which generates psuedo-random numbers within a given range. Often visuals like this depend on human input or data sets to create responses. I chose not to make it interactive because concepts I was contemplating—capitalism's inherent dependency on the movement of goods or services to increase value, the necessity of the same on boundaries to reference the scale of the shift, and finally, the orbit around the earth of human-constructed machines that facilitate this movement regardless of physical boundaries—all draw heavily on systems where there is only perceived control.
