Over dit evenement

Research fellow Esmee Geerken and Waag invite you to the Art-Science Symposium series Building as Being. The Symposium discusses new ways of urban design strategies. For this end, Geerkens invites thinkers coming from a biological, material and sociological background. What could architects for example learn from the way in which minerals build structures?

The Building as Being moves away from a human-centred worldview to a holistic view where we shape our environment in accordance with non-human entities. In three episodes, we look at ‘building’ on different scales: The City, The Mind and Matter.

Part 2. The Mind

Thursday the 15th of April 2021 | 20:00 - 21:15

How does self-organization shape the individual and collective human mind, and can we let go of our human desire to control our environment? Can we allow entropy and emergence in our collective thinking and what would this mean for our building strategies and how we enact with our ecosystem? With Prof. Dr. Brian Castellani, Sociology department, Durham University, UK and Psychiatry department, Northeast Ohio Medical University (US) and Orion Maxted and The Interactions, who created the Negative Poetry Human Algorithm exhibition.
