CO-EV Workshop #3: Morphology and Evolution with Brian Conley

Brian Conley is at UNM this weekend, here to lead our third and final CO-EVOLUTION Workshop! We will be discussing themes of emergence and complexity in various systems--physical, biological, and chemical. On DAY 1, Luis Bettencourt (Santa Fe Institute) and Felisa Smith (UNM Bio) will join us in a discussion of finding patterns in complex living and non-living systems. We'll be delving into the collections to make our own observations about patterns. On DAY 2, we'll continue our museum investigation, and students will present their findings to the group. In the afternoon, we'll break into a Research Lab/Think Tank on the possibilities of artmaking based on these findings. We will be joined by a group of faculty and students from various disciplines, creating the possibility for generative dialogue.
