Synthetic Aesthetics

Synthetic Aesthetics | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

Synthetic Biology is a new approach to engineering biology. By applying engineering principles to the complexity of living systems, scientists and engineers are making biology a new material for design. Synthetic Aesthetics, a project run by the University of Edinburgh and Stanford University, is bringing together synthetic biologists, designers, artists and social scientists to explore collaborations between synthetic biology, art and design.

ikstudio | cloud_cloak | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

The Cloak is a device that emits a wearable cloud. It emits a cover that negates the objectifying gaze of the observer. In a pervasive urban environment, the occupant may obscure their gender, their race, their identity. The device also allows the subject to choose a moment of respite and willful separation from the city as the cloud creates a singular space of occupancy.

BlendScript: Laser Slicer | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

I've written a little script, available on the scripts page, to slice up a mesh in Blender and export the slices as shapes in a SVG file that can be cut on a laser cutter. The mesh should be a manifold solid.

Beauty | Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy || “Beauty is nature’s way of acting at a distance.” — Denis Dutton | DigitAG& journal | Scoop.it

This article will begin with a sketch of the debate over whether beauty is objective or subjective, which is perhaps the single most-prosecuted disagreement in the literature. It will proceed to set out some of the major approaches to or theories of beauty developed within Western philosophical and artistic traditions."

Official Google Blog: Introducing the Knowledge Graph: things, not strings

'Imagine what search would be like if Google understand all the different entities in the world--the people, places, monuments, mountains etc. It would be so much quicker and richer, and people would discover far more. We've been dreaming about that possibility for a while and today we took our first step to achieving that goal. So I am super excited about the launch of the Knowledge Graph.' Larry Page
