Inspired by fireflies battling the synthetic light in our night’s sky, UVA presents Formation, a work that takes a closer look at the abstract concept of emergence. How the whole is not necessarily a sum of its parts; order arises from chaos, and vice versa.

Formation is work that examines this tension between noise and signal. The installation describes how patterns form and dissolve. Through kinetics, light, and sound, the room comes alive with nature, albeit through syntheticised means.
