Mathematician Norbert Wiener’s works have concluded that nature progressively disintegrates, in accordance with the second principle of thermodynamics. Humans have produced a paradoxically negative energy by receiving, storing and conveying information to compensate this natural entropy. It was named negentropy by cyberneticians. This development is characterized by an increasing level of organization. Sara Meyohas’ work ‘Cloud of Petals’ -from a performance and a film with the same name- wonderfully confirms this ‘cyber moment’. Photography of rose petals is a result of a long-lasting, meticulous effort of objectification, classification and documentation of irregular natural elements. Sarah Meyohas operates the computation of these petals and offers to establish the computer code of the rose and, by extension, of desire itself.
