Biology – Learning From Nature
It’s time to find those old books from biology class. Heavy research and artistic exploration are taking place to understand how nature is working and building the most amazing things without a big human brain.
This session picks up on Skylar Tibbits keynote presentation from The Conference 2014 and will look into what we can learn from how nature is built and how we can mimic it for our needs.
Artist and researcher Heather Barnett will talk about how she uses an intelligent slime mould in her art practice.
Michael Pawlyn, Exploration Architecture
Michael is the Director of Exploration Architecture and will talk about how biology is a powerful source of innovation. He will present a case for how biomimicry can help us address some of the key challenges of our age.
