THE METASTABILIAN MOVEMENT

"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…

CD~levels

“In coordination dynamics, the real-life coordination of neurons in the brain and the real-life coordinated actions of animals are cut, fundamentally, from the same dynamic cloth. Integrity is in turn preserved because it is never threatened. Psychophysical unity is undergirded at all levels by coordination dynamics.” -Maxine Sheets-Johnstone (1930– )
