Emergence


Emergence
A complex system comprises of a large number of interacting entities that collectively evolve through self-organization. It gives rise to emergent properties, such as coherent structures, patterns and novel characteristics, that are not previously observed in the individual components. Bird flocking and fish schooling are good examples of emergence in nature systems. This work is composed of an array of interacting and self-organizing individuals to mimic the emergent behavior of dynamic, complex systems in nature. Each individual observes the local environmental condition and the behavior of its neighbors to regulates its own reaction.

複雜系統由大量互動單元所組成。湧現現象則為組成單元通過自我組織,集體演化出先前在個別單元未可觀察到的協調結構、性質或圖形。在自然界裡,鳥群和魚群的湧現特性就是很好的例子。本作品以眾多個互動並自我組織的個體,來模仿自然界中複雜系統的湧現特性。單獨個體會觀察相鄰環境及其他鄰近個體的行為而調節自我反應。
