1AE8F is a generative piece commissioned by 不大示界 & 1733. Its algorithm is partially based on C42E, but highly customized to adapt the venue’s kinetic LED panels matrix.
1AE8F follows the same weighted quad-tree subdivision rule as C42E, except every unit consisting of a near plane and a far plane. The far plane gets a random horizontal and vertical shift for a pseudo orthogonal 3D effect. The boundary of every leaf node within the quad-tree structure coincides with the physical boundary of every kinetic LED panel within the matrix. Due to the precondition that the panel numbers of each side is non-integral power of 2, I also design the initial layout of the root nodes for both LED matrices. Both matrices’ kinetic patterns are controlled by a sequence of low-res heightmaps.
The installation is programmed using Processing.
