Lost in the Life

Installation & Interaction


"Lost in the Life" is a critical generative art created in p5.js and ml.js that talks about how each personmust face the loss of direction or purpose during the life cycle. All particles move randomly from fourcorners to the centre point to create a new soul, like a gestation process combining sperm and ovum. Theshape of the combining process is a butterfly's wings, representing the butterfly effect/dream thateverything in our life is impermanent. Each soul will conduct random walking without any target withinthe canvas until it dies.The audience can be a facilitator to control the orientation of the walking soul and let it move to aspecific position through the webcam detecting their single hand.
