I wonder if you’ve heard of the Society for the Study of Artificial Intelligence and Simulation of Behaviour—I love all that, all the way down to the extra ‘u’ for the UK spelling. As part of their annual conference, AISB held a Symposium in Liverpool today called Cybernetic Serendipity Reimagined, where I gave a 12-minute presentation on the status of the COLLOQUY 2018 Project (download the audio here and slides to follow along here). The presentation was a recap of progress on the project based on a paper published by AISB written by TJ McLeish, master fabricator of the COLLOQUY project, and myself.
It’s been a fascinating journey for Studio II: Programming for Designers and Studio IV: Immersive, Interactive Experiences, in the MFA Interaction Design program at CCS in Detroit. One of the discoveries is the (now obvious) discrepancy between the diagram of the Colloquy as published by Gordon Pask and the actual configuration-as-built.
At this point in the project, the entire digital model is complete and we are finalizing plans to fabricate the mobiles. We will open-source all that we learn. We are still seeking funding to complete the full-scale installation. Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
