Mapped Out: A Complex Landscape of Genetic Interactions - ScienceWatch.com - Thomson Reuters | Aural Complex Landscape | Scoop.it
Using yeast, a team of biologists has produced a network map representing the relationship and interactions between thousands of genes. Most of the mapped genes displayed few interactions, while some were observed to serve as “hubs” in the network.

Self Organizing Still-Life - Everyday Listening - Sound Art, Sound Installations, Sonic Inspiration

Self Organizing Still-Life - Everyday Listening - Sound Art, Sound Installations, Sonic Inspiration | Aural Complex Landscape | Scoop.it

I’m intrigued by this Self Organizing Still-Life created by David Fried. Once in a while I find out about a project that is so simple, yet so ingenious, I wish I’d come up with it myself.

These perfectly round spheres are set in motion by sound waves, through the level object they rest upon. The movement of each sphere can never be predicted, and they al move around in some sort of random choreography. There are more examples to be found on David’s website.

A Brief History of Synesthesia | Vague Terrain

The type of perception we normally have in mind when discussing the mirroring of sensory information is synesthesia- from the Greek "syn" [union] and aesthesis [sensation]. While being diagnosed with this condition as a parament state is extremely rare and likely to be inherited (something we'll look at into shortly), the number of artistic practices dealing with synesthesia as an adventitious or acquired state are growing steadily. For the latter, maybe "cross-modal translation" should be used in place of "synesthesia" to differentiate adventitious and inherited forms of experience, yet the "sexiness" of the term synesthesisa is difficult to shake off…"

Pierre Sauvageot's Harmonic Fields project, a participatory landscape of wind-activated musical instruments temporarily installed on the beach near Birkrigg Common, Cumbria, England. The haphazard plinks, drum rolls, whistles and drones is often mesmerizingly beautiful, as the following video makes clear. It's a kind of weather plug-in, constructed as a sequence of very different movements in space.
