Sanford Kwinter describes how organisms evolve the ability to track habits in order to “read” their environment. At the same time, environments reorganize and hide the intentions of the tracker. Kwinter argues that species evolve according to their immediate environment, developing abilities and sensitivities that, elsewhere, would hinder their ability to survive.

Introduction by:

Raymond Richard Neutra is the youngest son of architect Richard Neutra. His lecture focuses on the influences and Viennese roots of the VDL Research House (a.k.a. Neutra VDL Studio and Residences) in the Silver Lake district of Los Angeles. Neutra also discusses the influence that Frank Lloyd Wright, and Otto Wagner had on his father in terms of connecting with nature, using new technology and materials, and how these principles combine to act on the biological senses at the VDL compound. This video ends abruptly before the lecture ended.

Kwinter identifies the topic of the lecture as “Soft Systems,” a new type of biological space. He asserts that the physics model is giving way to a biological model. Kwinter explains that a dynamics of information has gained control over a dynamics of energy. Finally, he maintains that we are passing from an age of mimetic representation to one of modeling.
