Pattern and Chaos

Delighted to see the illustrated volume ‘Pattern and Chaos in Art, Science and Everyday Life’, which was edited by Sarah Horton and Victoria Mitchell has been published by Intellect Books! It is highly recommended and a fascinating read, get hold of a copy if you can. My contribution ‘Embodied and Coded: Drawings as Viral Systems’ reflects upon a process of coded drawings, which were used in my animation ‘in the same breath’. I examine them through the lens of viral systems which occupy a liminal spaces between the living and non-living.
