AJNA / MAPS, is a custom, written from scratch, generative program using processing (JAVA). This 2 minute 26 second real-time generative animation uses textures mapped and displaced into a 3D environment while trying to visualize the AJNA or third eye chakra. The third eye is said to connect people to their intuition, give them the ability to communicate with the world, or help them receive messages from the past and the future.

Because this is an algorithmic generative piece of software, it is not limited to a fixed timeline of animation, it can create an infinite length of animation and generate rendered stills infinitely like the pattern of a snowflake where no two visual compositions would ever be the same. When a video is rendered, you're basically viewing a window of time from the software's infinite system.

Davis also takes on the role of the critic, living with the work, watching it mutate and evolve, to finally capture/render a moment in time considered by the artist as visual pleasing. to put it simply, Davis programs all the rules, boundaries, and decision making an artist would make... but allows the software/algorithm to become the independent artist, and as such, Davis is in constant state of surprise in his role as observer as the program paints and animates decisions.

Among Davis highlights is a role in designing the visualization of IBM’s Watson. Prizes and awards include the Prix Ars Electronica’s Golden Nica. My work has been exhibited at the Tate Modern, the Design Museum London, le Centre Pompidou, the ICA London, the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, MoMA PS1 New York, the Whitney, the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum and more.
