Emergent Morphogenetic Algorithms – Particle System

The project aims to generate an emergent morphogenetic behavior based on a particle system that needs “energy points” to maintain themselves alive, and that is driven by surrounding forces (gravity and wind), designing multiple scenarios. The particles emerge based on the location of pixels with a certain brightness from an image. The user is able to control the size of the particles, interacting with the system in real time, using a slider within a range of values.
