Biopoiesis (© 2011-2012 DPrime Research) was a series of experiments exploring the relationships between structure, matter, and self-organization. The project featured the construction of analog computation and control systems that harnessed electrochemical reactions and formed what can be described as a computational “primordial soup.”  Information (an electrical signal) is passed through electrodes to a tank filled with a metallic salt solution (e.g., stannous chloride). The resultant electrochemical reaction grows into dendritic metallic threads – ultimately leading to the formation of a continuously shifting signal network that can be used to develop a complex, self-organizing media system.
