Daniel Brown is a creative technologist working in the fields of generative and interactive art and design. His pioneering 'On Growth and Form' series takes its name from a 1917 book by Scottish biologist Sir D'arcy Thompson, who used mathematics to investigate the shape of plants and animals and the relationships between different species.

At the Music Hall, a custom 'Victoria' iteration of the series also draws upon the 19th century tradition of cultivating and collecting personal and unique species of flowering plants, but with a 21st century nod to the futuristic notion of genetic engineering and artificial life. This unique animation for Aberdeen is generated in real time, and never repeats.
