Welcome to Alpaca

Welcome! The forum hosts discussion around “Algorithmic Pattern” - the ancient practice of making things through procedures and rules - e.g. repetition, symmetry, and interference at multiple scales.

We often share readings here, and it’s worth joining the companion alpaca zotero group for a collective bibliography, with attachments of the readings as pdfs or ebook formats where possible. To join the zotero group you will have to register there - once logged in a join button should appear on the group page.

This group started during coronavirus lockdown as an informal reading group meeting online. We no longer have these regular meetings, but you might find references to them in older forum discussions.
