Touch the screen, disturb the balance and watch the system fall into chaos. Then wait for the system to settle and reconfigure itself to find a new balance, form a new structure, a new harmony, a new equilibrium, stasis. Interactive abstraction – fragile structure, snapshot of a moment of harmony amongst chaos and disorder.

The project was inspired during an expedition to Madagascar with the Unknown Fields Division exploring the rainforests, mining landscapes and wild west sapphire towns, reimagining a territory equally wondrous and scarred, following the trail of global resource extraction into the heart of the most unique ecosystem on the planet.
