LANDSCAPES OF CHANGE SANFORD KWINTER PDF
Sanford Kwinter’s “Landscapes of Change” speaks of form and its underlying triggers and tendencies through a discussion of futurism and. “According to [the Hylomorphic] model, an independently constituted and fixed form is understood to be combined or impressed with a certain. I’m not sure I entirely understood this reading. I think Kwinter was arguing that forms are not really set entities, but entities in a state of stability.

This last statement whether or not true reminded me of the Metabolic Architecture s 0 in the sense that large structures were characterized by the processes of organic growth http: This energy comes from other systems contiguous to it and operating within it or upon it: You are commenting using your Facebook account.
What keeps a system dynamic?: What is catastrophe theory?: But what is the singularity there?
Email required Address never made public. The catastrophe set is a three dimensional, unpredictable and open ended irruption of a 2d surface and thus an example of virtual form.

In fact, forms represent nothing absolute […]. You are commenting using your Twitter account. Fill in your details below or click an icon to log in: Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here Or, perhaps, is a catastrophe a network of singularities?
I mean, anything can be altered.

Topology describes transformational events deformations that introduce real discontinuities into the evolution of the system itself. Forms are not fixed things but continuous metastable events … Forms are always new and unpredictable unfoldings shaped by their adventures in time. Catastrophe theory is interested in the effects of forces applied on a dynamical eanford from outside, forces that it then becomes the task of the system to neutralize, absorb, or resolve. The question here then, is do we embrace these or do we try to implement more control?
Form is the result of strife and conflict.

If form can be altered by a mere single point in a system, then diagrams and drawings and buildings can take shape or form in kdinter infinite number of ways. A catastrophe can occur only in the region of a singularity.

This notion that a system can make leaps starting from sudden shifts in behavior inevitably causing dramatic and unpredictable changes in state lends itself to catastrophe theory.
This site uses lanndscapes. What do we mean by singularities? Email required Address never made public. Singularities, as I understand, are points that can cause a change in a form under specific conditions.
