Digital has no theoretical constraints, but we have to impose constraints in order to abstract enough to create an understandable movement within ourselves that will allow us to produce work.


The 'fractured I', as in the chasm between the 'self' (undeterminable) and 'I' (the determined). We create symbols and structures between the Self and I to er.. get by. This is where digital is important, it makes it painfully obvious that we're filling the crack between the two by giving raw unformed data a structure (sound, image, file formats) so we can create, express or explain. What we don't really have (apart from the horribly unstable PureData, and that has limits too) is digital tools that allow us to really get into that essential malleability of the medium, yet. When we do, what will it sound, or look like.
