MediaFlies – A Video and Audio Remixing Multi Agent System
The project MediaFlies realizes an interactive multi agent system, which remixes life and prerecorded audio and video material. Agents engage in flocking and behavior synchronization and thereby control the material's continuously changing fragmentation and rearrangement. Visitors can influence the agents' behaviors via a video tracking system and thus shift the ratio of disorder and recognizability in MediaFlies acoustic and visual feedback.
