Megaschwarm 8 is one of nine artworks comprising the Megaschwarm collection by Andreas Nicolas Fischer.
Megaschwarm is a series of 3 triple channel generative media installations, each consisting of 3 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 and densities at which the points flow across the drawing surface at varying opacities.
