"a|symmetry" animation is compositing of the same singular arm movement. Virtual arm touches the void of virtual space. This is wondering and sensual touch. The isolated movement, when it is multiplied starts to lose particularity and forms one picture. Rotation, symmetry, mirroring and time delay produce abstract form. This form associates on living structure and gets qualities of symbols like mandala or some kind of living pulsating universe. Every small and slow single finger movement in final composition got dramatic impulse and velocity due to multiplication. Particular one becomes the One.
The compositing method is chosen following the idea (metaphor) of creation the systems of meaning. Each particular and isolated artifact, when pass through lot of observations, "mirroring", forms centric, stable, reliable picture. Like kaleidoscope. Insignificant one gets a meaning. The resulted "big picture" produced with ordinary human like element told us about unity, gentleness, love, human sensuality and imperfection (a-symmetry) that make us unique.
The idea evolved from the project proposal for the first Ars Electronica Collide@CERN competition which was the creation of the picture of the "universe" using body of the virtual actor and kaleidoscope algorithm for the picture compositing.
The sound is virtually generated cello and my voice.
