Brandon Morse

Brandon Morse is a professor of Digital Media at the University of Maryland and a Washington, DC based video and video-installation artist, whose work has been shown in museums and galleries across the United States, Europe, and Asia. His work portrays the degradation and collapse of organized systems. His process revolves around the creation of rule-based simulations of 3-D environments using animation software. Objects and environments are created in the software and assigned structural traits and physical behaviors and are then subjected to computer-generated forces such as gravity, turbulence and wind. The resulting videos are a record of these processes playing out over time wherein architectural and organic structures lose their coherence and slowly decay over time towards a chaotic, disorganized state.
