Engineering Entropy began as an installation by the League of Imaginary Scientists at Bradley University in the fall of 2010. That lead to a collaboration with engineers and artists on the campus, culminated in an exhibition in the fall of 2011.
The project manifested as an ‘earthquake table’ which participants can stand on, disrupting a model city. As entropy increases in the model city, floating objects suspended in tubes go from an ordered state to a less ordered one. Entropy can be reduced by reconstructing the city, which in turn will return all of the gallery elements to an ordered state.
