Amadi

Amadi is a generative video created using Processing, Java
and sampled video. Loosely inspired by John Cages Overpopulation and
Art, Karl Sims Evolved Virtual Creatures, Vladimir Todorovics
Silica-Esc and the traditional religions of the Igbo and Yoruba, it
explores a series of antagonistic relationship and competing interests
in a virtual world. Its fatalistic narrative evolves from simplicity
to a near stochastic complexity to eventual destruction.

The equipment is necessary as some of the source materials for the
will include no more than 5 minutes of live action. A sound component
created in conjunction with the video is being considered. In
addition, as part of the process of documenting this stage of the
project I would like to collect one hour of a video
journal.
