Iconic elements are the basic building blocks of a world
literally made of language. Six elements from this language relate to unique
pictorial styles and soundscapes used to represent the world, ranging from
plastic knowbots and surreal iconography to electronic abstraction and the
dirt of the real world. These elements are used as the base of an artificial
life model which runs the world, the behavior of the objects and lifeforms
The work has the capacity to evolve, change and mutate through human interaction and it's own evolutionary process. Visitor's to the world can create, construct and manipulate objects, influence the evolution of societies, and discover new language elements. Communication with the residing lifeforms occurs via the iconic language on which the world is based. The multiplicity of Iconica is experienced through this interaction - simultaneously a cyberspace, a mindspace, an abstract world, and a stylised reality.
