    INSPIRATION:

    The Imaginary Foundation says "To Understand Is To Perceive Patterns"...

    Albert-László Barabási, think about NETWORKS:

    “Networks are everywhere. The brain is a network of nerve cells connected by axons, and cells themselves are networks of molecules connected by biochemical reactions. Societies, too, are networks of people linked by friendships, familial relationships and professional ties. On a larger scale, food webs and ecosystems can be represented as networks of species.

    'For decades, we assumed that the components of such complex systems as the cell, the society, or the Internet are randomly wired together.

    Steven Johnson, author of Where Good Ideas Come From, writes about recurring patterns and networks:

    “Coral reefs are sometimes called “the cities of the sea”, and we need to take the metaphor seriously: the reef ecosystem is so innovative because it shares some defining characteristics with actual cities. These patterns of innovation and creativity are fractal: they reappear in recognizable form as you zoom in and out, from molecule to neuron to pixel to sidewalk. Whether you’re looking at original innovations of carbon-based life, or the explosion of news tools on the web, the same shapes keep turning up... when life gets creative, it has a tendency to gravitate toward certain recurring patterns, whether those patterns are self-organizing, or whether they are deliberately crafted by human agents”

    “Put simply: cities are like ant colonies are like software is like slime molds are like evolution is like disease is like sewage systems are like poetry is like the neural pathways in our brain. Everything is connected.

    "...Johnson uses ‘The Long Zoom’ to define the way he looks at the world—if you concentrate on any one level, there are patterns that you miss. When you step back and simultaneously consider, say, the sentience of a slime mold, the cultural life of downtown Manhattan and the behavior of artificially intelligent computer code, new patterns emerge.”

    Geoffrey West, from The Santa Fe Institute,

    "...Network systems can sustain life at all scales, whether intracellularly or within you and me or in ecosystems or within a city.... If you have a million citizens in a city or if you have 1014 cells in your body, they have to be networked together in some optimal way for that system to function, to adapt, to grow, to mitigate, and to be long term resilient."

    Author Paul Stammetts writes about The Mycelial Archetype: He compares the mushroom mycelium with the overlapping information-sharing systems that comprise the Internet, with the networked neurons in the brain, and with a computer model of dark matter in the universe.

    "Adrian Bejan takes the recurring patterns in nature—trees, tributaries, air passages, neural networks, and lightning bolts—and reveals how a single principle of physics, the Constructal Law, accounts for the evolution of these and all other designs in our world.

    Everything—from biological life to inanimate systems—generates shape and structure and evolves in a sequence of ever-improving designs in order to facilitate flow. River basins, cardiovascular systems, and bolts of lightning are very efficient flow systems to move a current—of water, blood, or electricity.

    this was a very special wedding for us. katie and i got to fly out with our good friends tyler + katie branch (you must go see their pictures from this wedding...amazing), to the small town, Haslington outside of Manchester. maria picked us up from the airport, giddy and excited, and we felt like we had known her for years. being that it was the first time that we met her, and we were filming her wedding two days later, we were all glad that we hit it off right away. the next couple days consisted of getting to know nick+maria better, and getting to see the venue locations for the first time. their wedding day was so special and unique to them, from the getting ready and seeing Maria get to video chat with her mom back in California, to Nick getting to just have some relaxing time with his best man, and knowing that both of them were so anxious to see each other. their chapel was on an epic proportion--i mean how often do you get to see or visit or pink chapel in the middle of nowhere? and the special baptismal ceremony for their son Jackson was great to be a part of. and hands down, once all the business was taken care of, these people knew how to have a good time, with hours of dancing, chinese lantern send off and great food. we had a blast getting to know, capture and hang out with Nick, Maria and Jackson--and have the best of wishes for their family! we are so glad to have made these friends.
