The Flood

Yoshi Sodeoka’s two latest series, The Flood: Orchestrated and The Flood: Chaos consist of code-based simulations that juxtapose the organic behavioural patterns of spiders with the inorganic nature of algorithmic animation. While each generative spider in The Flood: Orchestrated is custom coded with unique parameters, those in The Flood: Chaos are governed by randomised behaviours generated by diverse parameters, symbolising both the inherent behaviours biological encoded within nature as well as the unpredictability that proliferates within the natural world. The resulting videos fluctuate between ballets and battles, with predator and prey struggling interminably in 13-second loops.
