suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
nicholette CHAN, gilles RETSIN, aaron SILVER, & sophia TANG: Body topologic explores processes of self-organization which result in complex topological forms. Working with non-linear dynamics and local rules, node-networked bodies generated a variety of surface and volume organizations. These organizations explore algorithmic notions of material intelligence, ultimately producing topological entities that have coherent order when nearing a dynamically stable state.
