Artist Lozano Hemmer presented “Synaptic Caguamas” a large motorized Mexican “cantina” table with 30 “Caguama”-sized beer bottles (1-litre each). The bottles spin on the table with patterns generated by cellular automata algorithms that simulate the neuronal connections in the brain.

Every few minutes the bottles are reset and seeded with new initial conditions for the algorithm so that the movement patterns are never repeated.
