density compression is Fujimoto's visual experiment exploring the movement and placement of particles within a structure through the manipulation of a mathematical formula. Though Fujimoto does not consider himself a mathematician, he is manipulating different "ingredients" of a formula to explore various, often surprising, visual results. He is interested in unraveling the formula to understand the individual components and see how they affect the overall result. This also ties to a key concept he explores: that multiple components make up a greater whole.
