In this small world, virtual inhabitants develop and evolve. This happens according to a process that is referred to as genetic algoritms. Like most things alive, the moving shapes have DNA that defines them, the amount of segments they're made of and the proportions of these segments. Like our DNA, it mutates. The shapes multipy, grow and shrink over time.
They develop without requiring any further input, all aesthetic choice have been made in advance and the content is generating itself. What is visible is derived from itself. By being granted this freedom the work has the opportunity to surprise with it's emergent results.
