1. Civilization is a video installation we created with artist/director Marco Brambilla for the elevators Standard Hotel in NYC. It's comprised of over 400 video clips and it takes elevator passengers on a trip from hell to heaven as they go up or from heaven to hell as they go down. Pictures of the installation and Q&A with Brambilla and Crush is posted here glossyinc.com/civilization.html

Element 5:
Form 2: Line
Behavior 1: Move in a straight line
Behavior 5: Enter from the opposite edge after moving off the surface
Behavior 6: Orient toward the direction of an Element that is touching
Behavior 7: Deviate from the current direction

Process 13 (Software 2) is an interpretation of the Process 13 text:

Process 13
Bisect a rectangular surface and define the dividing line as the origin for a large group of Element 1. When each Element moves beyond the surface, move its position back to the origin. Draw a line from the centers of Elements that are touching. Set the value of the shortest possible line to black and the longest to white, with varying grays representing values in between.

Element 1
Form 1: Circle
Behavior 1: Move in a straight line
Behavior 2: Constrain to surface
Behavior 3: Change direction while touching another Element
Behavior 4: Move away from an overlapping Element
