Synapse Relapse explores the unpredictable and impulsive behaviour of human brain activity. Projecting over a six-hour period, the piece transitions from tranquility and organisation in the early evening to restless chaos as the night progresses, reflecting how the mind processes memory. Created using a custom-built Java application, time-based algorithms determine the visual output by generating randomised images in motion. What appears is up to chance, highlighting the unpredictability of human reflection and thought.
