> tech > system of power > sex >

a copy of a copy (cat)

singing scripts of weaving

simple but unpredictable.

- systems interconnected
parts capable of arbitrary
levels of complexity

- mechanisms to harness
unruly behaviour

cellular forms

2D surface of interconnected cells
cell division
mesh of cells rules when cells split if to add/remove/connect cell(s)

forces between connected cells
bulge force (length of connection|potential connect)
repulsion between unconnected cells

one rule cells / iterate the number of rules to 2 ...

Digital Bodleian
