Untitled (Blobs) V120645 60 minutes (1998)

This video is also projected on a full wall, and is carefully adjusted to make the "blobs" appear to be moving freely.

The three blobs have related chromosomes. Each chromosome contains genes which determine not only the color and style of the blobs, but also the way they make sound, and the way they move.

The three blobs are at the tips of a rotating triangle. Each blob goes through a cycle of growing and shrinking, moving towards the center as it does so. Because each blob executes a mutually prime number of cycles per rotation (3, 4, and 5), the phase relationships result in the blobs appearing in various combinations relative to each other.

Each blob also generates a genetically unique sound related to its growth using granular synthesis.
