Tuesday 20th June: Drawing on Complexity Workshop with Briony Barr

5:45PM - 8:45PM

Come enjoy an evening with artist Briony Barr as we create a one-of-a-kind emergent art piece.

[| Sign up on Schedule page of wiki ]


If anyone is interested in reviewing the footage of the Drawing on Complexity experiment and brainstorming some ideas for how to analyse it quantitatively, please join me in the main hall on Thursday after dinner. I will project a very slowed-down version of the time-lapse footage and we can reflect on emergent patterns. Also, if I have managed to procure a hacksaw, we can do some tape-ball cutting.

Ghost Ranch and Ojo Caliente, Saturday July 1

We're planning to go on a hike around Abiquiu, and the head to Ojo Caliente, which is an awesome spa with hot springs. I'm going to propose the Kitchen Mesa trail in Ghost Ranch, which is a beautiful part of Northern New Mexico located on the ranch where [Georgia O'Keeffe] spent much of her life painting the scenery. There are also guided horseback tours of the ranch that pass by Georgia's house, which people could do, and a few other hikes there as other options.

The Spa entry [fee] includes access to the public mineral pools, Mud Pool and steam and sauna 8 am - 10 pm every day.
