Free-trade in a little inhabited world

How does evolve an ecosystem ruled by simple behavioral rules?
Which factors assure the balance between different skilled organisms? Which factors will influence the hegemony and therefore the detriment of others?

Ecosystem is a projection of an interactive animation. It is an ecosystem simulation, driven by simple artificial intelligence rules.

— Video of the exhibition in Amiens, France.

Next to the projection, a notepad lists the different organisms and their initial abilities. This notepad has capacitive buttons. It’s connected to the animation and is used to influence the ecosystem: the visitor can add organism, or, if he wants to, destroy all forms of life in order to restart a new ecosystem.

You can experience Ecosystem on your browser. Introduce organisms with the numeric keys of your keyboard (1 to 8).
