Wire Nation is the preceding code editing before the Radix Systema which was originally written by Daniel Shiffman as Flocking. The idea behind the editing is mainly the same as an investigation in regarding the case of originality that has gone through by the development of technology.
This work is intentionally activated in the artist’s website with interactions in such as mouse dragging and mouse clicking without sound effect provided. The animated wire simulation that burst out from the centre of the screen somehow represents the phenomena of invisible wire in the global nation that is happening by the limitless progress of the internet and technological advancement.
As an audience or user, we can only wait for the end of the progression. Until then when we feel the anxiousness from the technological development that we as a human made earlier for the sake of civilization-changing. We will eventually create the other one within the same system.
We will try to change it by clicking the generated code on the computer screen only to realize that we only change the colour. We will drag the earlier code on the computer screen in hurriedly just to see that we’re making the same thing in a different direction. As it seems there is nothing that’s really new but a looping thing in a different method.
