By J. Casti, A. Karlqvist

This identify is the results of a one-week workshop backed by means of the Swedish learn company, FRN, at the interface among complexity and paintings. between others, it comprises discussions on no matter if "good" artwork is "complex" paintings, how artists see the time period "complex", and what poets try and show in be aware approximately advanced habit in nature

Complexity and Aesthetics 23 What about complexity? Is there are consistent relationship between the perceived "quality" of a piece of art and any reasonable measure of its complexity? Is a complex artwork more aesthetically satisfying than one that is "simple"? To even pose this question implies that we have some type of complexity measure that is intrinsic to the piece of art itself, and which doesn't depend on the person observing the painting, sculpture or whatever other type of artwork may be under consideration.

The determination of its acoustic spectrum might shed some light on its function (if any). In recent years the sand-pile paradigm of Per Bak [3] has been much used as a simple example for the creation and maintenance self-organised complexity. The critical slope of the sand pile is maintained by avalanches of sand that (ideally) occur on all scales from that of a single grain up to the size of the pile. As the sand pile grows from a few grains on a horizontal surface it does so by a collection of individually chaotic processes (individual sand grain trajectories) that have a more and more extensive effect on the pile as the critical slope is approached.
