Rule 30: Cellular Computation In Blue And Yellow

How do structures emerge in our model of a quantified, computational universe? From galaxies down to cells, atoms and strings. How does anything complicated get produced in nature?

The artwork “Cellular Computation In Blue And Yellow” uses the cellular automata mechanism discovered by Stephen Wolfram in the 1980s found across physics, chemistry and biology to explore how simple rules occurring in nature can create complexity and unique aesthetics.

From snowflakes to patterns on the shell of sea snails. Nature is using cellular rules we can observe and calculate in mathematical models and visualise through iteration.

Real-world systems, including biological and chemical ones help us to understand the most fundamental elements and relations that make the universe and life itself tick.
