Emergent behavior

Numeer Appoll series on paper, Newburgh, NY, 2021

All systems are composed of individual parts that generate a structure.
This structure then determines the behavior of the system that is depending on its individual parts but also, on their relationships to one another - which makes a huge difference.
I painted this concept of emergent behavior and represented the arrangement of the parts, but not the parts themselves.
This thinking process is the key to solving the root cause of difficult problems in our societies.
