Flames, clouds, bath water, fat... Elematrix is created from observational sketches of natural phenomena drawn in computer code. Each drawing is presented as a dynamic visualisation through which traces of physical presence ripple, erode and decay.

The 'elements' of fire, air, water, earth, are represented by variations on four discrete algorithms, creating a four by four matrix of sixteen shifting states. The rules of production are devised to create a visceral interaction of emergent complexity, bodies and movements become identifiable only as subtle perturbations in substance - evaporation in a tank of flame, vapour trails in a piece of sky, radiant ripples in a pool, bubbles in glutinous mud.
