Synapse |The entropiqIQ drop-books series curated by: César Reyes Nájera
A starting point to articulate an intellectual fabric supporting the entropiqIQ project. A forum of reflection including people moving on the limits and blurring boundaries on the knowledge of cities, information, technology, art, biology and philosophy. A series of publications in pamphlet format exploring the thought and ideas of thinkers and doers; articulated by simple detonating questions posed through emails, tweets and conversations:
- What is information?
- What is matter and energy?
- What is the city?
- What is entropy?
Some other concepts as evolution, ownership, copyright are also discussed.
Nature and city are not opposites or excluding concepts, in fact, they are interacting systems. The next step will be to understand and transform our cities under the logic of nature’s principles of organization. This series, fast printed and transmitted, may help in that connection.
