Creating Digital Art-Systems

How do I create audiovisual artworks that behave like autopoietic systems and exhibit emergent properties? I began investigating this question as part of an MA in Digital Arts at Camberwell College of Arts, University of the Arts, London. I now plan to continue this research as part of a PhD research programme.

For my second week at Schumacher College the focus of our studies shifted to Gaia Theory and ecological systems in general. Frijof presented materials from his "Hidden Connections" and "Web of Life" books and Stephan Harding presented work from his book "Animate Earth". After one session Stephan took us up to Dartmoor for a "Gaia walk" (pictured) where we looked at the systems he had been describing in the morning. This was a great experience. Other highlights from the week included a tour of the forest garden next to the college and presentations from other course participants

After a week of studying the science of Leonardo with Frijof Capra at Schumacher was time for a couple of days off. I used it as an opportunity to review my notes from the previous week and do some video recording around the college.

Where do I start? It's been a really packed few days. Various sessions with Frijof Capra discussing the science of Leonardo. A 'gaia' walk with Stephan Harding around the Dartington estate. Plus cooking, gardening, cleaning and eating. Schumacher College really is a amazing andfulfillingplace to be. I've also been doing a good amount of thinking about my artwork and future direction. I'll summarise this after the course.
