QATIPANA Individuation processes on the relationship between Art, Machine and Natural Systems

Updated: May 6

How does mono-technology and computerization of cultural techniques influence the nature of knowledge and the affection of being with others (people, things, nature)?

The work revolves around the concepts and processes of Becoming and Individuation through a hybrid ecosystem whose architecture is called Qatipana (Quechua word that means flow, sequence, transmission), is an hybrid ecosystem of information flow which, even though not the kind of dispositive systems theory was designed to read, offers some valuable empirical insights to test some key aspects of Simondon’s information processing systems; this research aims to observe a algorithmic cycle performed by the cognitive system of an Artificial Intelligence agent observing a living ecosystem.





Relational Creativity

This project considers cybernetization processes as a generalized ecology concerned with life and the production, exchange and consumption of meaning. We therefore believes that cybernetization can lay the foundation for an ecological explanation that examines how signs are communicated and how meaning is produced and experienced within ecological systems. This third-order cybernetics extends beyond the original reach of living organisms and their environments to ecologies of ideas, power, institutions, media, etc. In this sense, cybernetization would be radically environmental, since it postulates the primacy of relationships over fixed terms, binary oppositions, and linear logics.

Hybrid Ecology

Enactive autonomy in computational systems


"Machinic creativity not as the attribute of a technical individual, but as an operation of regulation of the technical assemblage", Gilbert Simondon.


This work is designed to be projected on 3 screens where the 3 mentioned ecological conditions are observed (The Organic, The Organic/Inorganic and The Culturally Calculable).
