Started in 2017, SPACEFILLER is a collaboration between Alexander Miller and Alexander Nagy. They create interactive media art that explores simulated systems which exhibit emergence of both order and chaos (for example: crystal formation, bird flocking, and slime mold growth). SPACEFILLER infuses these systems with tactility via light projection, sound, sculpture, and electronics.

Fantasy Parameter Spaces is SPACEFILLER's first solo gallery show and presents work from their past two years of collaboration, from their first piece (ALGOPLEX I) to brand new projects (Particle Collider). Each piece invites the viewer to manipulate the laws of physics of a miniature make-believe universe in order to discover the boundary between stable and chaotic states of nature.

@lookingglassfactory has generously provided two of their amazing holographic displays for our upcoming show at @glassboxgallery. This work-in-progress uses a simulation of slime mold to create an alien terrain. The show is called "Fantasy Parameter Systems" and it opens Thursday, September 5th, 7–10 pm. Come play with our miniature universes! #mediaart #unity3d #generativeart #algorithmicart

More progress on “Particle Accelerator”, our interactive projection mapped piece! 16 sliders (the same used for audio mixers) allow you to adjust the trajectories of particle streams and observe the resulting patterns. The final version of this piece will be going in our show at @glassboxgallery in September. Subscribe to our mailing list for future updates in your inbox!

About two years ago, we created our interactive “Lightcube”, which allowed viewers to remotely control a projected algorithmic playground. This was the first SPACEFILLER project we ever did! We’re remaking the Lightcube for our show at @glassboxgallery in September. Here’s a sneak peak of our new playground. #interactive #digitalart #3d

Projection mapped sliders. This is a prototype for our upcoming show at @glassboxgallery in September. We’ll be posting lots of process pics/vids on Instagram as we prepare for it.
