The video is a three minute excerpt of Colourfield. Evolutionary Software Ecosystem, a generative software written by Jon McCormack to build an ecosystem of colors. A certain number of colour agents cooperate and compete for resources fed back into the system based on the overall colors produced. Like a real ecosystem each individual agent has its own capacity of adaptation, thus, establishing an equilibrium that oscillates between stability and collapse.
