With aesthetics of cognition and communication we address general principles of cognitive entities, be it organisms or machines. The goal is to experimentally play around with the basic ingredients of cognition and communication and open them up for speculation and unrealized possibilities of cognitive systems. On the basis of experimentation and new forms of depicting it, symbolic media, AI programming, mathematics and natural languages can be examined as extensions of the mind.
