Re-TUR[n]ING Matter investigates the possibility of creating complex geometries through Reaction Diffusion algorithm that generates a wide range of Turing patterns found in nature. By putting simple processes governed by the mathematical equations together, complexity emerges and patterns come out as a result of natural consequences. A variety of performative capabilities are constrained by the machine requirements of production methods (D-shape) and use gravity, light, and Newtonian forces as external inputs.
