Electrochemical “computer” demo

Biopoiesis¬†(currently in progress) is a series of experiments exploring the relationships between structure, matter, and self-organization, with a goal toward the development of autonomous computation and control systems in a computational “primordial soup”. It is based on the work of cyberneticist Gordon Pask and his research into electrochemical control systems that had the ability to […]

Introduction and tutorial to non-euclidean geometry and riemann manifolds – 13th Dec, 2011 Tuesday

What:¬† A quick introduction and tutorial to non-euclidean geometry and Riemannian manifold, as implemented with paper and tape, and then a bold adventure into the kind of mind-bending geometry where parallel lines can diverge, angles can sum to more than tau (2*pi), and circumferences can grow exponentially. Where: VHS When: 7:30-10:30 pm ¬†13th Dec, 2011 […]
