Edge of Chaos, detail

It is hypothesised that dynamic systems with feedback can experience an adaptation to the Edge of Chaos. This term is used to denote a transitional space between order and disorder, region of bounded instability that engenders constant dynamic interplay between the opposing poles. This work aims at creating a framework for such phenomena to occur and for audience to enter this realm and add or subtract from it. Doing precisely that, it seeks to embody the specificity of the contemporary momentum – the rhizomatic now.

One may enter the system and add to it or substract from it but without ever knowing the exact result of their actions. The system encompasses incoming signals, reiterates them and functions self-sufficiently as a hyperobject outside human scope.

Michal Mitro is an artist and a researcher working across the field of disciplines and media. Trained in Psychology and Sociology, he focuses on the nuances of everyday life as well as hyperobjects of planetary scale. In his artistic practice he translates his sociological imagination into crafted sculptural environments with elements of sound, light or electricity. Themes that he gravitates towards explore relationships between human and more-than-human worlds and the supposed friction between natural and artificial. Mitro proposes narratives both affirming and disturbing in order to shape viable futures one may like to inhabit.
