Top Selection of the Day
Phylotaxis
Phylotaxis is an exploration of the space where science meets culture. Created by artist Jonathan Harris, it illustrates the delicate balance between science and culture in our world. The individual beads of the Phylotaxis represent an ever-changing zeitgeist of science news in our world, populated automatically every few hours by a computer program that scours a slew of online news sources and blogs that focus on science. The Phylotaxis is therefore beyond human control, autonomously composing its own new identity, based on what's happening in the world of science. Launch
