Universal Everything — Lifeforms

“Mesmerising - delights and entrances”
— Wallpaper
“Mesmerising - a miraculous dream”
— The Guardian ★★★★★
Universal Everything is a media art and design collective established in 2004. 

Lifeforms at 180 Studios brings together 14 projects within a series of habitats designed by Ab Rogers Architects. Their largest show to date is constantly unique. An amalgam of unpredictable, generative pieces and installations that mirror and shift with time and the public’s interactions. The works draw from the history of visual culture – from Futurist’s attempt to depict the body in motion to Eadweard Muybridge’s sequential 19th century film experiences. 

The lifeforms are often made with generative software. “It's compelling and surprising because it’s always fresh. It's off doing its own thing and evolves beyond what we create in the studio.” What's interesting is how we project meaning and personality onto Universal Everything's work. They design their own computational systems to grow characters, plants or abstract lifeforms - the personalities emerge by themselves.
