The patterns that underlie living constructions and their growth are subject to the work AUTOPOIETIC. Certain principles occur in the growth of organic structures time and again, manifesting the relatedness of living things as unfolded by D’Arcy Wentworth Thompson in his work On Growth and Form in 1917. The emergence of vast variation via a limited set of principles is reflected musically in many of the compositions of Johann Sebastian Bach (1685–1750), where one melodic theme is being varied on several melodic layers without ever losing its identity.
Virtual kinetic objects try to give access to the surprisingly ordered structures hidden in seemingly amorphous space. The design relies on precise mathematics because questions about spatial relationships in the context of organic structures can only be answered with geometrically exact constructions. If change is the only constant in nature, here it is written in the language of geometry.
