    Closest Packing Sculpture

    Using the concept of closest packing of objects in space, I am studying the connections of packing structures with the irrational number phi, 1.61380… This number appears in a huge range of problems connected to structure, growth and symmetry, spanning phyllotaxis (plant growth) Platonic solids, spherical geometry and Penrose tiling. The later is an a […]

    Model #4

    ASMbly Lab2 has started this week – a ten day open access workspace bringing together artists, scientists and makers, in central Leeds.

    Infinite monkey theorem in real life

    Give a room full of monkeys some typewriters and an infinite amount of time and you’ll eventually get the complete works of Shakespeare. Lacking that kind of patience, not to mention the requisite number of bananas or desire to clean up after monkeys, the creative minds at Lab[au] built a robot that does the same thing. Called Signal-to-noise, […]

    ASMbly Lab 2013

      ASMbly 2013 ran in Unit 3 11 Regent Street, Leeds LS2 7QN in September 2013. —————————————————————- ASMbly (Art.Science.Make) is a space for collaboration where artists, scientists and makers can explore common ground in working practices and generate new knowledge through ideas, experiments and prototypes. ASMbly welcomes artists, scientists and makers in Leeds and beyond who are interested […]

What is the ‘superposition’?

'Superposition' is a technical term in quantum mechanics, which describes an object which can exist in more than one state simultaneously.

thesuperposition.org is a collaborative community of artists, scientists and makers, based in Leeds.

We meet to discuss the overlap of our three disciplines and to be inspired to create artistic work which can be considered 'science', 'art' and 'making', simultaneously.
