Pour certains scientifiques, la recherche sur l'eau doit aller bien
au-delà des problèmes de pollution.


Documentaire de Franz Fitzke (Allemagne, 2001-41mn) ZDF


L'eau qui, dans les religions et civilisations anciennes, était capable d'accomplir
des miracles, est devenue pour nous une ressource banale. Pire, la science et la
technique ne la considèrent plus dans sa globalité, mais seulement comme la formule H2O.
Quelques chercheurs ont pourtant lancé des travaux originaux, comme Viktor Schauberger,
considéré comme le père de la recherche moderne en la matière. Il a notamment développé
la thèse selon laquelle l'eau ne coule pas en ligne droite mais en tourbillon, dans un
mouvement qui ressemble à celui du tire-bouchon. Ses idées révolutionnaires ont inspiré
des applications concrètes. Ses élèves travaillent par exemple sur de nouveaux types de
conduites, des procédés d'analyse plus fiables ou des systèmes de retraitement plus
efficaces. Il est aujourd'hui suivi et soutenu dans ses méthodes peu orthodoxes par des
universitaires enfin convaincus que l'eau est davantage qu'un mé

Transcript:

...For certain scientists, research on water should go farther than problems about pollution.  Documentary by Frantz Fitzke (Germany 2001 - 41mn) ZDF. Water which, in ancient civilizations and religions, was capable of miracles, has now become a trivial resource. Worse, science and technique do not consider its globality anymore, but only it's formula H2O. Some researchers have nevertheless launched original works, like Viktor Schauberger, considered as the father of modern research in this matter. He notably developed a theory along which water does not flow in straight lines, but in whirlpools, un a movement that ressembles that of a corkscrew. His revolutionary ideas inspired real applications. His students are for example working on new types of conducts, more reliable analysis processes, and better recycling systems. He is today followed and supported in his unorthodox methods by academics finally convinced than water is more than <gets cut>more than a mixture of hydrogen and oxygen. ..."

Context Free

Chris Coyne created a small language for design grammars. These grammars are sets of non-deterministic rules to produce images. The images are surprisingly beautiful, often from very simple grammars.

Chris' program was a command line program for unix-like systems. We couldn't wait to play with creating our own images, but we wanted a full graphical environment for exploring them. Hence, Context Free, an environment for editing and rendering CFDG design grammars.
