People on the Fly, an Interactive Digital Installation

June 14 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The Carl & Marilynn Thoma Art Foundation is pleased to present Christa Sommerer and Laurent Mignonneau’s 2016 digital artwork People on the Fly in its U.S. debut at Art House in Santa Fe, New Mexico. In this interactive installation, People on the Fly attracts a virtual swarm of houseflies to a visitor’s captured image using the artists’ custom swarming algorithm. With this algorithm, only bodies in motion will invite the flies.

Insect swarms provide artificial-intelligence researchers with models for understanding how lifeforms make decisions on a particle level, as a swarm thinks cooperatively, without a dominant leader. In this way, a swarm communicates through networked intelligence, a theory called emergence. Software algorithms designed to simulate biological systems can learn from swarm behavior, producing digital data that, in turn, may implicate genetics, social order, and creativity.
