Amongst the undergrowth, in the tangle of chaos and noise, exists a pattern that emerges only when looked at again, and again, and again, and again… To predict fluid dynamics at a molecular level, many thousands of computer simulations need to be carried out. The data has a high noise-to-signal ratio, and so must be averaged and repeated many times in order to extract meaningful data. The ink-mapped movement of the ball on the football table in this installation at first appears random; however, after many, many games are played, distinct patterns emerge.
