Hyperschwarm 8 is one of nine artworks comprising the Hyperschwarm collection by Andreas Nicolas Fischer.
Hyperschwarm is a series of 3 triple channel generative media installations, each consisting of three 4 minute videos in 4K UHD resolution. It is an update of the Schwarm series, which uses the same generative system with the difference that the color composition is being generated from within instead of being pre-defined. The colors are re-generated at specific intervals during the execution of the software, shifted in hue over time and faded over the last set that was drawn onto the canvas. The installation is evolving slowly over time, revealing new colors through the particles that flow across the canvas. Each set has 3 different scales at which the points flow across the drawing surface at varying opacities.
