Intricada means ‘interlaced’ in Old Occitan, a Romance language spoken in the south of France. This project explores the balance between emergence and control.
Intricada is a open edition long-form generative series released on Bright Moments in March 2023.


Intricada is created with autonomous agents, like ARTERIA, drawing very small dots and following simple rules, positioned according to geometrical patterns.
I’ve designed Intricada like a simulation, giving initial conditions and see what comes out of it.
Each piece is the result of thousands of unpredictable consequences.


This collection includes a very large number of possible variations. Some properties are specific to the agents and allow to define their rules, colors, number of children, angle… Many parameters influence the initial position and direction of the agents, palettes (more than 30)…
Each combinaison creates a very unique output.

From far and near

From a distance, an Intricada piece may look like intersecting circles, geometric patterns, confetti, a perspective design...
When you get closer, you can see that these shapes are composed of multitudes of agent trajectories.
Finally, if we get even closer, we can see that these trajectories are composed of points (several hundreds of thousands per output).

Building animation

Intricada is based on a main concept: autonomous agents. When you watch the rendering of an Intricada piece, you can enjoy the very satisfying building animation. It also helps to understand how each piece is made.
First, you see the main agents being born, then see them move according to the rule they have been assigned, have children from time to time or stop if they meet the path of another agent.



Here is an explanation of the different features of Intricada:
