bitforms gallery is proud to present Mesocosm (Northumberland UK) by Marina Zurkow as the third piece in a series of streaming generative artworks, presented in collaboration with Small Data Industries. Mesocosm (Northumberland, UK) is generative work that represents the passage of time on the moors of Northeast England. One hour of world time elapses in each minute of screen time, so that one year lasts 146 hours. No cycle is identical to the last, as the appearance and behavior of the human and non-human characters, as well as changes in the weather, are determined by a code using simple probability equations: seasons unfold, days pass, moons rise and set, animals come and go—all around a centrally located and almost omnipresent human figure. This passage is adapted from a text by Dr. Una Chaundhuri.
