DAY 14 – BIOMIMICRY 5 – CLAIRE

As long as you get that there are diversity and variety. It’s very much a biologists perspective. The design perspective is diversity. So the other thing I didn’t mention, is that they maintain integrity through self-renewal. I think that is kind of covered, the fact that you want to maintain your functions, your functional integrity you want to maintain, you don’t want to maintain structure always. If you can maintain functional integrity, through self-renewal, it means you will be able to go with the change in context. So even if you break down you can build up again. The easiest way to think about it is the cells in your skin, if you have an injury, they break down but have the capacity to build up again, and it’s normally through network feedback loops that enable that as well. I see that as a result because of all of these other ones by maintaining integrity through self-renewal. Imagine all your systems were able to maintain integrity through self-renewal. There’s a lot of people making self-repairing concrete and self-repairing that, if your tennis racket gets a crack, a little bit of liquid leaks out and that liquid sets at a different temperature, of the oxygen in the atmosphere and makes it touch again. So there are different things you can do, and as we make smart materials, they might be able to repair themselves as well. But if you make things that are modular, that’s a change in context, the break up and build up again, it’s likely that they will be able to do it.

Attune and responsive is this one, and attune and responsive is all about three in cooperation. Feedback loops is essential if you distribute it, and feedback loops is essential if you want to self organise…
