FSM

(2023) Algorithmic edition of 100

Description

FSM is a visual grid-system based on autopoiesis, the principle of self-organization through self-reproduction central to cybernetics. At the heart of FSM is a computational mechanism, a finite-state machine (FSM), which generates sequences of visual outputs by activating particular agents and cycling them through varying sets of configurations.

The grid-system in FSM is segmented along three axes: horizontal, vertical, and diagonal. This segmentation constitutes the machine’s parametric space.

Certain agents and configurations are programmed to appear exclusively in specific grid segments, illustrating a principle of spatial distribution.

Similarly, spatial distribution is mirrored by temporal distribution. Specific agents and configurations are set to emerge at predetermined time intervals. This interplay turns FSM in a self-organizing system living on the blockchain.

​Presenting ‚FSM‘ by Julian Hespenheide . A visual grid-system based on autopoiesis, the principle of self-organization through self-reproduction central to cybernetics. At the heart, is a computational mechanism, a finite-state machine (FSM).

​July 7th, 2023 in Berlin, we will be live minting the generative edition of 100 on fxhash. The drop will be a mix of online & offline release. Exact drop details to be announced.
