*Balanced Movement* is a visual experimentation on a stochastic process. Inspired by the work of Iannis Xenakis, it is an attempt at utilizing the dynamic equilibrium of a stochastic system for visual composition. A three by three matrix can constitute a Markov process, with each row of the matrix defining a transition probability from a given state to any of the other three states of the system. A single transition between states is a random process, but given a large number of transition events, a dynamic equilibrium emerges. When visualized, this produces a unique texture with different patterns at different scales. Given the dynamic nature of the system, the textures are constantly moving and changing. But, this occurs on the microscopic level, while the macroscopic behavior of the system retains a singular character, balanced by the hidden governing system.
