Fluxus - The Art of Conversation
Fluxus is an exploration of the art of conversation. In a digital environment dominated by emoji's and abbreviations we created a system which abstractly elevates standard text chat to a stimulating, organic, and emotive visual experience. Although the visualization method is abstract it is intended to add a further layer of meaning to the conversation in a similar way that abstract visual art adds meaning to an experience. Stylistically, Fluxus draws inspiration from the Dutch artistic movement of De Stijl. The movement sought to distill objects through pure abstraction using the most basic of shapes and colours. The movement strives to ignore the natural form of colour of an object and focus on the abstraction. So too Fluxus does not express the content of a conversation but rather the universality as captured through abstraction.
