Hyperschwarm is a series of 3 triple channel generative media installations, each consisting of 3 4 minute videos in 4k UHD resolution. Hyperschwarm is an update of the Schwarm series, which uses the same generative system with the difference that the color composition is being generated from within instead of being pre-defined. The colors are re-generated at specific intervals during the execution of the software, shifted in hue over time and faded over the last set that was drawn onto the canvas. The installation is evolving slowly over time, revealing new colors through the particles that flow across the canvas. Each set has 3 different scales at which the points flow across the drawing surface at varying opacities.

Hyperschwarm 1 – Triple Channel Video Installation ( 4:00; 4k per screen)

Hyperschwarm is a digital representation of a triptych, which is a three-paneled piece of art, commonly found in the world of painting and art installations. This particular piece called “Hyperschwarm” by Andreas Nicolas Fischer, is a generative video installation, which is created by a system that autonomously generates the visuals through the use of algorithms.

The panels are vibrant and full of swirling colors, resembling the fluid, dynamic motions often found in natural phenomena such as the movement of fluids, the flocking of birds, or the swarming of insects. Each panel is a feast for the eyes with a complex interplay of colors blending into each other, creating a sense of depth and movement. The colors range from fiery reds and oranges to cooler blues and purples, with patches of green, yellow, and other hues intermixed, suggesting both harmony and chaos within the natural world.

The piece evolves in real-time or through a predetermined sequence, offering an ever-changing visual experience that defies static interpretation. It is a digital canvas that explores the intersection of art, technology, and nature, inviting viewers to interpret the flowing forms and colors that emerge and dissipate across the panels. The installation’s title, “Hyperschwarm,” hints at an enhanced or exaggerated state of swarming, suggesting a sensory-overloading experience of being surrounded by intense, collective movement.

Hyperschwarm 2 – Triple Channel Video Installation ( 4:00; 4k per screen)

The generative art installation consists of a triptych, three separate panels that together form a cohesive visual narrative. Each panel is alive with an abstract interplay of colors and organic shapes that seem to undulate and flow dynamically, suggesting constant motion. The color palette is rich and varied, with bold reds, deep blues, purples, vibrant oranges, and muted greens swirling together to create a visual effect that is both chaotic and harmonious.

The contours and the color gradients give the impression of a fluid, almost liquid motion, as if each panel captures a frozen moment of a larger, unseen dance of colors. The artwork evokes a sense of organic growth and transformation, reminiscent of natural processes such as the blooming of flowers or the complex patterns of weather systems.

The visual style is reminiscent of marble patterns or the intricate details of a Rorschach inkblot test, inviting viewers to project their own interpretations onto the fluid shapes. The installation’s generative nature means that it likely uses software algorithms to create these patterns, resulting in a unique and ever-changing piece of art that never repeats itself. The frames are designed to highlight the continuity between the panels, emphasizing the seamless flow of colors and shapes across the boundaries of each individual piece.

Hyperschwarm 3 – Triple Channel Video Installation ( 4:00; 4k per screen)

The work features three vibrant panels that are each marked by a dynamic and fluid interplay of colors. The left panel bursts with warm tones of pink, red, and yellow that flow into each other like the petals of an opening flower. The central panel serves as a stark contrast with its deep black void surrounded by an eruption of reds and yellows, suggesting a volcanic energy or a nebulous creation in space. The right panel cools down the composition with blues, greens, and purples cascading together, reminiscent of ocean depths or the plumage of an exotic bird.

The movement in the artwork is accentuated by the sweeping gestures of color that suggest vigorous brush strokes despite their digital origin. The colors are layered with a depth that gives the sense of a three-dimensional space, inviting the viewer to look deeper into the image. The abstract forms do not resolve into any specific shapes, leaving the interpretation to the imagination of the viewer.

The juxtaposition of the three panels creates a visual dialogue between the colors and forms, with each panel contributing to a narrative of organic growth, transformation, and the cyclical nature of creation and dissolution. This triptych is likely meant to be experienced as a continuous loop, where the boundaries of each panel are not the end but rather a transition to a new beginning, reflecting the generative algorithm’s perpetual motion.

Megaschwarm 01 Installation View ( 4:00; Triple Channel 4k)

A triptych of abstract generative art by Andreas Nicolas Fischer. The artwork consists of three vertical panels, each featuring a fluid and dynamic blend of colors that flow into each other, creating a marbled or topographical effect. The colors are vibrant and range from bright greens, yellows, and oranges to deep purples, blues, and subtle whites. The fluidity suggests a digital manipulation where colors seem to be in a state of mix or flux, perhaps reminiscent of natural patterns such as geological formations, clouds, or the swirling surface of a planet. The panels are framed in black, which contrasts sharply with the vivid colors, and they are displayed on a gallery wall, which is dimly lit, focusing the viewer’s attention on the bright and complex colors of the artwork. The pieces are likely a combination of algorithmically generated patterns and artistic choices, resulting in a unique and mesmerising installation.

Megaschwarm 02 Installation View ( 4:00; Triple Channel 4k)

The three vertical canvases display a dynamic and vivid mix of colors that seem to flow and blend with an organic and fluid motion. The left and right panels show a brighter palette with dominant reds, greens, and purples, while the central panel features a darker theme with black spaces that provide a stark contrast to the vibrant hues surrounding them. It gives the impression of a digital creation where the colors have been pushed and pulled into swirling patterns that might resemble a psychedelic interpretation of natural phenomena, like flowers in bloom or the undulations of a vibrant, living coral reef. The artwork is displayed against a dark gray wall with subtle lighting, emphasizing the luminosity and depth of the colors. Similar to the previous artwork, the black frames encase the riot of colors and help to define each panel as a distinct piece of a cohesive whole. This installation would likely draw the viewer in, inviting them to find shapes and forms within the abstract designs.

Megaschwarm 03 Installation View (4:00; Triple Channel 4k)

Another triptych of abstract generative art, each panel bursting with an even more complex interplay of colors and shapes than the previous ones. The swirling patterns are reminiscent of smoke or liquid in motion, creating an almost hypnotic effect. The left panel features a darker background that sets off the bright, flame-like colors in the foreground, suggesting depth and movement. The middle panel is lighter, with a variety of hues that give a more ethereal and less structured appearance. The right panel returns to a darker base with the colors vividly standing out, almost like a lively dance of fire and wind.

The colors themselves are incredibly rich and varied, ranging from neon greens and blues to deep purples, fiery oranges, and reds, with transitional shades that add to the complexity of the visual texture. The overall effect is organic, dynamic, and visually captivating, inviting the viewer to get lost in the intricate details and the flow of colors. The art seems to have a life of its own, giving an impression of constant change, as if each moment the shapes and colors could swirl into a new form. The panels are set against a dark background, emphasizing their luminosity and the vibrancy of the colors used. The framing is simple, yet it serves to contain the wild energy of the artwork within a structured space.
