Mission to Earth (2003)
Example of Algorithm
Soft Cinema is a collection of algorithmic database films by Lev Manovich.
Manovich defines this kind of cinema to be composed of:
-a ruleset determined by the author that determines the installations’ layout
-a database of media elements
-motion graphics, animation, diagrams must be used in addition with video
The combination of these elements allow for an infinite cinema, where every viewer is offered a unique experience.
