Fun With Python Function Parameters

Fun With Python Function Parameters | {S}PATIAL .BRAIN | Scoop.it
Virtually every programming language has functions and procedures, a way of separating out a block of code that can be called many times from different places in your program, and a way to pass parameters into them.

studio : ANA RAJCEVIC | FASHION, SCULPTURE AND BEYOND | {S}PATIAL .BRAIN | Scoop.it

 The project is grounded in a unique visual interpretation of animal anatomy, building upon existing skeleton structures to create a series of sculptural pieces that appear as natural properties of the human body, suggesting strength, power and sensuality. Concepts of mutation and evolution are explored in order to develop a contemporary cross-image of human and animal, an atemporal, supreme creature, beyond past and future.

The goal was to fabricate a collection of 8 pieces of personal adornment that would not be specifically categorised as jewellery or accessories. The idea was to step out of the traditional jewellery/accessories context in order to develop a ‘new breed’ of precious objects that can be exhibited both separately on their own and fully attached to the human body.

 

The pieces perform a double function: they exist as fashion objects attached to the wearer, as well as separate art works, exhibited in gallery spaces.
Because of this dual quality they can be considered fashion artefacts in the true sense: objects of desire, rather than just mere adornments.

Evolutionary dynamics of RNA-like replicator systems

Evolutionary dynamics of RNA-like replicator systems | {S}PATIAL .BRAIN | Scoop.it

RNA-like replicator systems have been central to many speculative theories on the emergence of Life as network of interacting molecules. In this work, Takeuchi and Hogeweg investigate several parameters (e.g. information maintenance, emergence and storage) to review central concepts such as quasi-species, error threshold, genotype–phenotype map, hypercycle and multilevel selection.

From Tribes to Digital Networks

From Tribes to Digital Networks | {S}PATIAL .BRAIN | Scoop.it

«...Organizational complexity is defined as the amount of differentiation that exists within different elements constituting the organization. This is often operationalized as the number of different professional specializations that exist within the organization. For example, a school would be considered a less complex organization than a hospital, since a hospital requires a large diversity of professional specialties in order to function. Organizational complexity can also be observed via differentiation in structure, authority and locus of control, and attributes of personnel, products, and technologies. Contingency theory states that an organization structures itself and behaves in a particular manner as an attempt to fit with its environment. Thus organizations are more or less complex as a reaction to environmental complexity. An organization’s environment may be complex because it is turbulent, hostile, diverse, technologically complex, or restrictive. An organization may also be complex as a result of the complexity of its underlying technological core. For example, a nuclear power plant is likely to have a more complex organization than a standard power plant because the underlying technology is more difficult to understand and control. There are numerous consequences of environmental and organizational complexity. Organizational members, faced with overwhelming and/or complex decisions, omit, tolerate errors, queue, filter, abstract, use multiple channels, escape, and chunk in order to deal effectively with the complexity. At an organizational level, an organizational will...»
