In the vast tapestry of human history, certain inventions and innovations stand out as marvels of ingenuity, merging science, art, and culture into a single canvas of human achievement. The humble kite, with its roots reaching back thousands of years, is one such marvel. Often associated with carefree leisure on sunny days, kites have also been instrumental in science, war, climate research, and artistic expression. This essay embarks on a journey through time and disciplines, exploring the multifaceted role of kites in shaping our world.Continue reading “Kites: Soaring Through myths, history, science, and art research”

The utilization of wind energy represents an ancient relationship between humanity and the natural world. Windmills, wind engines and wind generators embody this enduring connection and stand as both scientific marvels and artistic expressions. We will delve into the historical chronology of these remarkable devices to celebrate their scientific and artistic significance.Continue reading “Holobionte – Harnesing the wispers of wind: windmills, windengines and energy harvesting tools”
We live in a world that can no longer be read as a two-dimensional map, but must be understood as a series of vertical layers that go from the satellites that surround our planet to the tunnels that are in the deepest part of the earth.

Towards a meta-natural realism
Inhabiting a world in constant oscillation, surrounded by natural phenomena, tectonic changes, drastic fluctuations in pressure, temperature, humidity, periodic alterations by gravitational attraction forces, but also, inhabiting a world constantly mutated by the impact of human activity, extraction of raw materials, seascapes soaked in burning oil, floating plastic islands and an exponential increase of portable wireless interconnected devices. Wandering through our (in)ability to understand the world we inhabit and of which we are part, being the reality that surrounds us increasingly complex, while consuming feeds of reality through digital environments which overflows us with information and counter information in a post-truth era.Continue reading “Acoustic Signatures – Oscillatory spheres”
