Raspberry Pi Powered Artwork Reveals Emergent Structures #PiDay


Chaos holds patterns, and Fito Segrera’s Conversations on Chaos uses chaos theory, elements from dynamic system studies, and experiementation to reveal the emergent structures that lurk behind the chaotic mask — via Creative Applications

“Chaos is a state of utter confusion or extreme disorder. In thermodynamics, entropy is used to determine the amount of chaos of a system; this is one of the ways employed to study how our universe expands. Starting from the Big Bang and during 14.3 billion years until the present moment, matter has spread and organized in space; creating an ordered, stable, and apparent symmetric universe. Our harmonious existence, our bodies, our knowledge (patterns of thought), everything we experience today in our organized, balanced and stable lives, emerged from this original disorder.” – Fito Segrera


The total parts of hardware in this installation are two Random Oscillating Electromagnetic Pendulums (ROEMPs), a RaspberryPi linux computer, an audio amplifier and a speaker. The RaspberryPi is mainly used for software and data processing as well as for generating synthetic speech from the data collected. The core hardware are the two Random Oscillating Electromagnetic Pendulums (ROEMPs).
