Speakers: Bifo, Alessandro Sarti
What is the meaning of the word “trans-formation”? How does a (new) form emerge from Chaos? When can you say that a form is “new”? What is the meaning of new? This event is aimed to face these questions by different points of view: the point of view of biology, of neuroscience, of synthetic images. Our subjects are the following: morphogenetic processes, determinism and uncertainty in the generation of forms, emergence of form from information and information from form.
