At first sight the reflecting elements of Under Influences just seem to float. After a closer look you will realize that they chance positions, creating a subtle and abstract light spectacle.
There is a parametric design behind Under Influence. This means that each element is important for the entire system. Jury member Lydia Fraaije explains that this artwork from Iemke van Dijk is a perfect example of swarm intelligence; a special kind of artificial intelligence where one parameter can effect a whole system. The artwork also suggests that one individual can change more that you might expect.
