    There is obviously a lot to know about this. There are some good points here. 🙂

      This field is partially explored indeed. Obviously, I find it highly interesting and exciting. Again, as I wrote to other comments, appologies for the delayed reply. Your comment was amongst a number of comments automatically put in the spam folder for some reason…

    Hi..Marilena, I am really appreciate your project. I would like to ask a question about number of light sensor. How many do you use in order to control 28 panels.

      Hi there. Thanks a lot for your comment. My physical prototype, consisting of 25 panels, was not responsive to the current environment of the exhibition. It was a physical, kinetic representation of a highlighted area of the grid of the whole facade. The virtual model shown on the display next to my installation uses a set of 11 virtual sensors which take values depending on the various possible positions of the sun. Then, my optimised Neural Network generates a CA pattern which responds to the current conditions. My previous endeavour (posted under the post titled ‘CA facade’) was responsive to the environment and was using just one light sensor. If you have more questions on that, don’t hesitate to ask me.

    Hey Marilena. This is an amazing work that you have done relating to Cellular Automa. May I know what program u use to simulate the overall facade patterns in your video?

      Hi there. I used Processing 1.0 – an open source Java-based language – to both optimise and simulate my facade.
