reaction~diffusion

SPHERE RD (reaction~diffusion), oil on canvas, 100 x 150 cm, 2016, by Drazen Pavlovic, original oil painting with Certificate No.52679, For Sale.

“It is suggested that a system of chemical substances, called morphogens, reacting together and diffusing through a tissue, is adequate to account for the main phenomena of morphogenesis. Such a system, although it may originally be quite homogeneous, may later develop a pattern or structure due to an instability of the homogeneous equilibrium, which is triggered off by random disturbances. Such reaction-diffusion systems are considered in some detail in the case of an isolated ring of cells, a mathematically convenient, though biologically unusual system. The investigation is chiefly concerned with the onset of instability. It is found that there are six essentially different forms which this may take. In the most interesting form stationary waves appear on the ring. It is suggested that this might account, for instance, for the tentacle patterns on Hydraand for whorled leaves. A system of reactions and diffusion on a sphere is also considered. Such a system appears to account for gastrulation. Another reaction system in two dimensions gives rise to patterns reminiscent of dappling. It is also suggested that stationary waves in two dimensions could account for the phenomena of phyllotaxis. The purpose of this paper is to discuss a possible mechanism by which the genes of a zygote may determine the anatomical structure of the resulting organism. The theory does not make any new hypotheses; it merely suggests that certain well-known physical laws are sufficient to account for many of the facts. The full understanding of the paper requires a good knowledge of mathematics, some biology, and some elementary chemistry. Since readers cannot be expected to be experts in all of these subjects, a number of elementary facts are explained, which can be found in text-books, but whose omission would make the paper difficult reading.”  -Alan Turing, The Chemical Morphogenesis…”

The Metastabilian Movement

(TMM) is a name for all possible ‘pioneering trajectories’ of The Squiggle Sense. The Squiggle Sense is a ‘sixth sense’ of The Complementary Nature, thought to emerge as a function of metastable brain~mind Coordination Dynamics, hence the term “Metastabilian”, or “one who pursues one’s metastable mode”—Metastabilian artists seek to engage their squiggle sense as a foundation of their artistic process. Thus, the vision, works, methods and criticism of TMM as an Art Movement are both inspired and mitigated by the “metastable mode” of brain~mind coordination dynamics...
