0ct0p0s_ The Musings of a Starfish
The starfish has its brain distributed throughout its many arms. Every arm senses the surrounding world individually, and yet do they act as one.
The observation of other species provides many appealing metaphors for distributed cognition and collaboration. Indeed our own bodies are composed of trillions of cells and microbes, that work together as an organism, able to reflect on its collective endeavours.
To better understand the mechanisms within collective thought and creation this research platform investigates Performance & Pervasive Play and collects forms of Collective Worldbuilding as a tool for critical thought.
