When most people think about science in New Mexico, Los Alamos National Laboratory is the first thing to pop into their brains. The Santa Fe Complex is working to change that by mixing together the aesthetically beautiful aspects of science with the complex, mind-bending ones. Through weekly discussions, a series of educational programs and the occasional special event—such as a late-August collaboration with Albuquerque’s Museum of Natural History for “Friday Fractals”—the Complex, which officially opened on June 14, is already completing a mission that Managing Director Don Begley describes as “having a public space that could provide info to people of all interests.” And with its focus on complexity science—which focuses on systems that are both interconnected and adaptive—the network that’s already in place is sure to bring brilliant artists and scientists alike into a beautifully complex ecosystem.
