Rally, 2006

This flash movie starts showing a grid in which each square has a random color. Then one of the colors replaces the color of randomly chosen square, that color is removed from the array of possible colors. This happens very many times at the speed depending on the computers computing power. Finally one color “wins” and fills the whole screen and the cycle starts again. The work is a visual description of the situation where probability little by little replaces randomity.
