How Do You Navigate En-tropy?
This event is part of a project exploring how individuals, groups and societies navigate entropy.
Entropy is “transformation within”; a measure of disorder; a natural result of the myriad possibilities that exist within any system.
Entropy naturally tends to increase, but with energy and work it can decrease.
Most importantly, entropy is navigated by individuals, groups and societies every day in different ways, some of which may be wiser than others.
How do you navigate entropy, in your academic discipline and in your personal life? How do others navigate it?
These are the questions this project aims to explore.
What will participants be doing at this event?
The event is an invitation to create disorder. Participants will be given a white circle on which they can draw, paint, and write. Participants may also bring a photograph or piece of writing that they can tape or glue onto the circle. Participants will then be directed to a large grid where they will post their circle alongside other circles, gradually creating disorder but also a portrait of the myriad ways people navigate entropy.
Participants will also have the opportunity to participate in a series of short (30 second) filmed segments where they explain in their own words how they navigate entropy in their lives. This all should take no more than 15-20 minutes.
Come to the atrium to create disorder!
