Little chicken is a particle video made in Processing.
It aims to give a representation of a human being through digital media.
A human is hereby intended as the sum of multiple parts (particles) moving in a non-predictive way but still limited by edges.
During the life of the video (as well as the life of a human being) there are many pseudo-random external factors that will take place, influencing the movement of particles.
Some of these factors are stronger and will last longer than others. According to their “intensity”, they will attract more or less particles as different events in our life require more or less our involvement.
However, over time, the particles change colour as people change through their lives, and changing all together represents their belonging to the specific individual.
