Daisyworld was a computer simulation written by James Lovelock in the 1980s which demonstrated self-regulation on a planetary scale. Taking inspiration from the Daisyworld model, we have explored interconnectedness as a way of thinking and creating.

Daisyworld.uk was created by art group Genetic Moo and commissioned by Phoenix, Leicester. The physical exhibition comprising three projected artworks will run from 7 January to 21 February 2022 at Phoenix. This website has been created to accompany the exhibition: below are three online works to explore.
