Haze is an interpretation of Chaos Theory – the science of deriving deterministic rules in turbulent, seemingly chaotic systems. Chaos is as old as the Universe itself, but we have only begun to understand chaos with the advent of computer technology.

Haze is an audiovisual installation featuring chaotic images of gaseous matter. The images are presented in Rorschach style, allowing for the viewer to find patterns formed within the projection. In a sense, they become the chaos theorist, finding the order within chaos (the method to the madness.)
