Artists use color, material and other media to communicate their ideas and concerns. Is code another medium? Intensity is a fresh selection of interactive projects that use code to experiment with sound, poetry and movement.
Skittish Tree // Martín Bravo
Skittish is a sound reactive tree that responds with skittish behavior to loud noises. In a quiet environment, it will behave normally, moving slightly with the wind. As soon as one starts making noise it will adopt the behavior of a skittish animal, getting scared and dropping its leaves with a loud scream, whereas totally pleased with soft melodies. The tree is the product of an obsession with how recursion works in both nature code, and also with the results of applying to one element behaviors that originally belong to another.
