"Creative Awareness~Pursuit of The Squiggle Sense of The Complementary Nature."

(TMM) Co-founded in 2011 by David Engstrøm and Drazen Pavlovic. Grounded in the science Coordination Dynamics and “the philosophy of complementary pairs (or squiggles)  as described in The Complementary Nature (MIT Press, 2006). Metastabilian artists explore, employ an express their work via compelling, valuable new information about the human brain~mind. But The Metastabilian Movement isn’t only an art movement. Awakening and wielding the squiggle sense is a legacy of the metastable complementary brain~mind itself, and so is relevant to all field~levels of human interest and endeavor, the individual~collective awareness~pursuit leads to a vast and mostly uncharted frontier for creativity~inspiration…

Review of TCN

The Complementary Nature ~ A Review by Olaf Sporns “The division of our world (natural and social) into distinct contraries or opposites has become almost universal practice in most fields of human endeavor and inquiry, including science. Undeniably, imposing such divisions on space and time, wave and particle, order and chaos, action and perception, or organism and environment have enabled
