Science Salon #001

Sun 7 May 18:30

Signal Chains as Stimulus Artifacts


Is the art we make and culture we build simply an evocation of ancestral memories? What is the basal thread running through our creative inspirations… are they just entangled solutions ingrained biologically since before language? How have our experiences been changed by the technologies operating on symbolic representations of this world around us? All material suffers entropy but is all data lost with it?
