The artistic goal of the project is to create a communication pathway between complex mathematical structures and intuitive creativity, as a collaborative model. By enabling artistic input into mathematical complexity, we aim to start a dialogue between mathematicians and artists on equal terms, which allows artists to become inspired by mathematics which they would not have otherwise encountered, in a much more rigorously considered and efficient way than, for instance, by playing randomly with parameters.
The mathematical goal of the project is to open new sonic or visual pathways in understanding complex mathematical systems by using the artistic feedback of this dialogue. To experience an artistic projection of the mathematical complexity might inspire mathematicians to new ideas and approaches which are otherwise unthought of. Referring to the collective behaviour of swarms, it might be easier to characterise its qualitative behaviour by also listening to it rather than by only observing it.
