Beautiful, Chaotic


Eric Deis's art work "Beauty and Chaos" is a multi-user environment that involves both cyber space and physical space. Based on real time user data, music and images are generated and projected and played in a gallery when information is received from the "Beauty and Chaos" web site. This website features a multi-user drawing interface where people all around the world can draw simultaneously. Everything created by a web site visitor is sent as raw data to the gallery where it is processed by a computer. Based on this data, the computer composes an impromptu musical score and generates an impromptu, ever-evolving image.
