Cellular Automata And Digital Ecosystems

I am partaking in Open Lab’s Collaboration with Space Studios to engineer digital entities which will hopefully open a space for others to reflect on the digital::analogue ecosystem we now inhabit.

Conway’s Game of Life and subsequent iterations of cellular automata are the principal inspiration, but the influences range beyond that and the project is extremely ambitious in it’s scope. From what I understand the manner in which Alberto de Campo realised the “Varia Zoosystematica Profundorum” will be a guiding inspiration as to what this final project is aiming towards.

I’m looking forward to seeing how it unfolds and I hope to unleash as much of a critical eye as possible on the work therein.
