2009: new paradigms and algorithms

always trying something new, and revisiting something old too: text woven into the lines, typography, variations in fractal geometries, time of the essence (location, and other circumstances too), structuring angles, chance everywhere, etc...

these explorations are supported by a few happy findings and aesthetic developments, but also and more profoundly by new ideas and a new philosophy. studying, learning from others, stealing, jumping ahead of a good idea, and all these sorts of things still apply. research, mobility, availability, incremental development.

toujours à l'affût et aux aguets

this experiment was made in 1913 to imprison and preserve forms obtained through chance, through my chance, at the same time, the unit of length: one meter was changed from a straight line to a curved line without actually losing its identity (as) the meter, and yet casting a pataphysical doubt on the concept of a straight line as being the shortest route from one point to another.
(marcel duchamp - as quoted in d'harnoncourt, mcshine, 1973a, pp. 273-274)
