Biomimesis: Hyphae

Interactive installation inspired by fungal growth.

Biomimesis: Hyphae is interactive visual installation combining algorithm simulating fungal growth with cold digital aesthetics, it was originally prepared for Vivisesja Festival 2013.

People movement is tracked and changed into food that this digital life-form consumes. Lack of movement means lack of food, and fungus starts to slowly decay and die.

This installation was build using modified space colonization algorithm in Cinder library using motion tracking from OpenCV library.
