Order / Disorder
Order / Disorder is a fascinating interdisciplinary super-concept. Its research has accelerated in the last few decades: Fractals and chaos theory, which until recently considered outside of any specific discipline, became legitimate research topics. Complex phenomena - whether cosmological or subatomic structures, cities and human societies or diverse delicate ecosystems - are now considered and treated within analogical, philosophical frameworks. These are developed around general insights into the nature and morphology of structure, meta-structure, and their order and hierarchies.
