      Abstract

      La Dispersion du Fils concerns the tragedy of Actaeon, the hunter transformed into a stag and chased down and devoured by his own hounds. The work can be taken as an algorithmic interpretation of the tale’s central themes: metamorphosis and transcendence, pursuit of forbidden knowledge or unattainable goals, sacrifice and transgression, chance and control. Designed for display in a 360° omnistereoscopic multi-user virtual reality theatre, the work takes the form of a voyage through vast, living three-dimensional structures constructed entirely from audio-visual elements found in the film archives of Jean Michel Bruyére and the LFKs. The artwork is real-time, generative, aleatoric and chaotic; never repeating and never ending. Any single moment is guaranteed to never be witnessed again, and of all the possible states the system might assume, most will never be seen at all. This paper discussed both the immersive and emergent aspects of the work, from both technical and aesthetic viewpoints.

      Optimizing the success of random searches.

      We address the general question of what is the best statistical strategy to adapt in order to search efficiently for randomly located objects ('target sites'). It is often assumed in foraging theory that the flight lengths of a forager have a characteristic scale: from this assumption gaussian, Rayleigh and other classical distributions with well-defined variances have arisen. However, such theories cannot explain the long-tailed power-law distributions of flight lengths or flight times that are observed experimentally. Here we study how the search efficiency depends on the probability distribution of flight lengths taken by a forager that can detect target sites only in its limited vicinity. We show that, when the target sites are sparse and can be visited any number of times, an inverse square power-law distribution of flight lengths, corresponding to Lévy flight motion, is an optimal strategy. We test the theory by analysing experimental foraging data on selected insect, mammal and bird species, and find that they are consistent with the predicted inverse square power-law distributions.
