This project explores intricate behavioral complexity observed in both natural and artificial workspaces. Morphological changes in the environment act as catalyzer to produce connected audiovisual images.

In short, the environment and, in this implementation, an island in the Azores are thought of as a massive self-regulating generative system. We express fascination with its unpredictable yet coherent behavior. Some significant notions underpinning this behavior are (1) coexistence of natural and artificial systems, (2) remotely responsive systems and (3) complexity and adaptation.

Azores implements these concepts as a large-scale realtime web-driven audiovisual installation.
