Mathematical Monsters and the Continuum

Elizabeth de Freitas

As Erin Manning (2015, 48) says of artfulness, there is always “a rigorous process that consists in pushing technique to its limit, revealing its technicity.” This technicity becomes more than a confining habit when it is attuned to the force of its own potential, when it evolves into a technicity that unleashes “a becoming that could not have been mapped in advance” (ibid., 60). Technicit...

This means that it automatically creates a particular kind of attention, “producing a shock to thought, communicating vibrations to the cortex, touching the nervous and cerebral system directly” (Gilles Deleuze, Cinema 2. The Time-Image. Minneap...

Variables, Diagrams, Process

Pascale Criton, Deborah Walker

The characteristic of a musical time-space, whether sound is the result of material sources or generated by machines, is to give consistency to previously unheard sound individuations—without identity (Deleuze 2003). To this end, mapping and spatial-temporal diagrams determine the variables’ changes and the modelling of dynamic events—following either a gestural or techno-generated process....
