SKETCHBOOK

Recently updated: I’ve decided to use this section to pull out different research threads I’m investigating and track how those threads evolve. Each of the posts below will be updated as research evolves - be it a material experiment, news item, event.

DIGITAL LIFE FORMS

This research thread tracks my thoughts around digital life as a legitimate life form.


REFERENCE: “LENIA”

Lenia (from Latin lenis, “smooth”) is a cellular automaton, like Conway’s Game of Life, but with continuous states and continuous space-time. It supports a great diversity of complex autonomous patterns or "lifeforms" bearing resemblance to real-world microscopic organisms. More than 400 species in 18 families have been identified, many discovered via interactive evolutionary computation.
