                Christine Dalenta and Benjamin Parker recently completed a series that draws heavily upon their respective areas of expertise: photography in Dalenta’s case, and paper folding in Parker’s. Parker is at the forefront of a new, mathematically based origami method called tessellation. The term refers to geometric designs composed of identical shapes that fit together exactly. Dalenta and Parker’s project was prompted by the acquisition of a vintage photographic paper designed to allow folding without cracking. Long out of production, it had originally been used for French-folded greeting cards, for prints to be attached to reports and theses, and for military mapmaking. Dalenta and Parker folded this light-sensitive paper in the darkroom, exposed it, and processed it through standard fiber print chemistry. The resulting Shadow Tessellations, as the artists call them, investigate and complicate the differentiation between image and object. This presentation and Q & A took place in the Barnes-Franklin Gallery in October, 2014.

                  Why does a nest of bees or ants appear to have such vastly greater intelligence than a single insect of the same species? Why do motorists in traffic circles get into far fewer accidents then drivers at an intersection with traffic lights? Why does the stock market appear to have a "mind of its own"? "Emergence" is an exciting new area of scientific and interdisciplinary research that parts company with much of the history of science in recognizing that it's possible for there to exist a complexity or complex system that is decidedly a "whole that's greater than the sum of its parts". . .and that cannot remotely be predicted by the traits of any of those parts. Peter D. Skiff, PhD, is Professor of Physics and Co-Director of the Science, Technology, and Society Program at Bard College. This exciting talk in Tunxis's ongoing Proof & Possibility lecture series discusses the history and philosophy behind the modern science that produced emergence studies—even as this new field departed from what many modern philosophers narrowly foresaw as possible for science in the first place.
