11 Feb '12 On Parametricism
Beyond serial production: As an evolution of systems aesthetics, parametricism inhabits n dimensional phase-spaces. Computation opens up vast planes.
Identity as instance. Points in a trajectory as state. The primacy of the instance asserts: No art without instantiation.
Trajectories subject to the whim of singularity, attractor, catastrophe, bifurcation; the vortex pull of basins.
Tight clumps of symbols produce infinite domains. The instance and the wilderness of the parameter space beyond. Knob twiddlers forage in the undergrowth.
The parametric sublime is a vertigo of instantiation. Don't look down.
