“Now we’ve got the notion of a machine with an underspecified goal, the system that evolves. This is a new notion, nothing like the notion of machines that was current in the Industrial Revolution, absolutely nothing like it.”
Quoting the words of cyberneticians Gordon Pask, the aim of Cybernetic Machines workshop is the design and exploration of systems that evolve in time, through the use of Grasshopper and Arduino.
Each participant will be supported in building a Cybernetic Machine, working on its physical interface [sensors and wiring], designing its digital counterpart [Grasshopper diagramming] and programming its behaviour [tracing of information]. Bred with information recorded by the sensors, the system will eventually be able to evolve its own behaviour processing the data received through series of feedback loops and will generate novel and undetermined responses to external stimuli.
