Operating Manual for Spaceship Earth
The important concept mention in the Manual which we pay no attention to is 'synergy.' Coined by Fuller, synergy means we can not understand the whole by understanding it's parts.
Earth came with lots of room for error to allow for her ignorant inhabitants to evolve. As we've...

Protrude Flow expresses the dynamics of fluid motion of physical material, the dynamics of organic, wild shapes and movements of liquid by means of digital computer control. Protrude Flow uses magnetic fluid, sound, and moving images. Affected by the sounds and spectators' voices in...
This work is conceptualized as an "organic tower." The magnetic fluid, with a smooth black surface that seems to draw you in, reaches the top of the tower, spreading like a fractal, defying gravity. The form and texture of the physical surface of the tower constantly alter between the hard iron...
2002 M.I.T. FLUID MOTION EXPERIMENT
A fluorocarbon-based ferrofluid, with about 400-G saturation magnetization and low field magnetic susceptibility of 3, is placed within a glass Hele-Shaw cell of 1.1-mm gap. Magnetic fields are applied that have in-plane clockwise rotating and dc axial magnetic fields.

The communications satellite that will move information using Internet data-packet standards, allowing direct access to a network via satellite for faster and more flexible communications than current connections will be launched in 2008.
The satellite will be placed in geostationary orbit at 45 degrees West longitude offering coverage of...
_reflect and refocus on goals and concept
_from indexicality to programing
_nodes are the most interesting and connected spaces in the project, ergo:
braiding nodes become highly functional volumes == bigger
singularities == narrower + smaller

A short french film about memory, time, and perception.
"Nothing tells memories from ordinary moments, only afterwards do they claim rememberance on account of their scars."
: : work on samples of the 3 different parts (big volumes, living & landscape)
especially living and landscape is too similar
: : big volumes in the knots at the ends need to be more smooth on the outside "egg like"
eddies could fold to the inside to keep a smooth outside
: : occupy the middle of...
