Text is not Static

Text in its nature and very architecture is anxious, it is neurotic. It is only held in a seemingly apparent stasis. A work with text is never truly finished but ceased. The paragraph is a shivering mass of bent lines as is a single sentence. The systematic function of text is to infer a voice in a code of bent lines and spaces between. The sculptural nature of the lines of letters is akin to an exhibition of forms encoded with implied speech and thought. It also is like the ground awaiting crac...

Il problema è che questo nuovo paradigma cognitivo che, in definitiva, è lo stesso che regola i processi in natura, non ci viene spontaneo m...

Evolutionary creativity. The inner life and meaning of art

Generative art is a key example of a general transformation carried on by many disciplines, which are going to populate our world with increasingly different subjects. [...] In mirroring nature and life, also the generative art forms and processes are leading to the advent of a “Third Life”, the life that little by little humanity is giving to its artefacts.
