Sometimes pretty ones
And this is my home. Hiya. Hope the traffic wasn’t too bad getting here.
I submitted my PhD thesis a few months ago. Emergent systems are often thought of as special, and are often linked to desirable properties like robustness, fault tolerance and adaptability. Drawing on a number of fields including thermodynamics, nonlinear dynamical systems, evolutionary theory and information theory, my thesis uses cellular automata to create a new way of developing emergent systems as easily as conventional systems, or even automatically through search. I’m hoping to find out whether I’ve passed soon.
I’ve also made quite a few websites over the past few years, mainly in WordPress and mainly as part of projects for a small production company I helped start and run for around five years, where I also created some DVDs and a range of printed matter. There’s an incomplete ‘best of’ list on the portfolio page if you’re into that sort of thing.
