Points of Divergence
(2020)

These set of generative animations stand as a metaphoric visual translation of an abstract mathematical object, the dynamics from two chaotic systems: Henon Map and Logistic Equation. Each animation represents a transduction of the dynamics for each system for a specific set of initial conditions. These dynamics are calculated through their discrete version and data from the orbits is used as raw material for controlling parameters for the visual elements. In this way, dynamics from the equations are translated into dynamics of the visual composition and so a metaphoric and aesthetic bridge is proposed not as a traditional visualization (as understood in the mainstream of nowadays art) but as data transduction.
