Catastrophe: Process Study Cont…

This definition seeks to explore Grasshopper as a tool for the modelling of process, totally apart from formal representations of the agents of change in that process.  For instance, how might we model the process of erosion without using the forms of ground, water, or wind to do it?

This excercise does not seek to turn attention away from agents of change, and thereby model a completely a-historical process, but rather seeks to loosen up the ontological categories of the formal determinants of change as a way of exploring the always more complicated and interconnected nature of process.
