Cities in Flux [2010]

A modification of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas that turns the formerly violent game into an interactive abstract art generator.

By moving the game’s camera around freely in the distorted 3D space, the player can experience the environment in new ways, watching the geometry of buildings and streets contort and break apart into new patterns. Pressing any button on the controller saves an screenshot; samples of images taken from past installations can be viewed below.
