HOW TO PICTURE LIVING SYSTEMS No.2

Jun 23, 2017 | 18:30 - 20:00 | KLI

Exhibition "How to Picture Living Systems" No.2 ––In vielen natürlichen Systemen ist ein Equilibrium eine Voraussetzung für das Funktionieren des Systems. Im Prozess der Wandlungen in biochemischer Hinsicht werden oft Grenzwerte überschritten und dann pendelt sich wieder ein Equilibrium ein. Heute wissen wir, alles was wir protokollieren oder beobachten können, sollten wir auch darstellen können und eben darin besteht die große Herausforderung unserer hoch-technisierten, maschinen-bezogenen Zeit. Was können Maschinen darstellen und inwieweit können sie es nicht? In der Feinstruktur des Lebendigen sind viele Faktoren durch feed-back Mechanismen gesteuert, jedoch in der kultur-evolutionären Entwicklung des Menschen sind solche feed-back Schleifen fast unsichtbar. Gibt es einen kultur-anthropologischen Fortschritt? Auch in der Kunst finden wir derzeit ein Nebeneinander von rein kommerziellen Zielsetzungen und gleichzeitig einen sehr stark wissenschaftlich-künstlerisch orientierten Ansatz.

HOW TO PICTURE LIVING SYSTEMS 2

In many natural systems, an equilibrium is prerequisite to the functioning of a system. In the process of transformations, in biochemical terms, limit values are often exceeded until an equilibrium is established once again. Today, we know that we should be able to represent everything we can record or observe – and that is precisely the great challenge our high-tech and machine-dependent world faces. What can machines represent and what not? In the microstructure of the animate, many factors are controlled by feedback mechanisms. In the cultural evolutionary development of humans, though, such feedback loops are almost invisible. Does cultural anthropological progress exist? In art, too, we are currently seeing the coexistence of purely commercial objectives and, at the same time, an approach that is very strongly orientated towards science and art.
