‘A Natural History of Networks / SoftMachine’ is an electrochemical algorithmic performance that probes an alternative computational and technological material regime.
Created by the artist collective WERC, “Pixi” is a digital organism located in a dutch forrest, inspired by the complex patterns that exist in nature and questions whether a technical natural phenomenon can imitate the complex aesthetics of nature or interact with it.
Following from the Morphogenetic Creations we covered on CAN some months ago , Hybrid Forms: New Growth is the latest in the series of “Cellular Forms: an Artistic Exploration of Morphogenesis” research work by Andy Lomas.
Wanderers is a collaborative project between Neri Oxman + Mediated Matter Group, Christoph Bader & Dominik Kolb to create four digitally grown and 3d printed wearables.
“The motion triptych shows an interpretation of what the initial concepts would have looked liked if they were not realised as a line of runway clothes but spontaneously realized themselves as autonomous life forms.”
Morphogenetic Creations is a collection of works that explore the nature of complex forms that can be produced by digital simulation of growth systems.
