sin(tan(x)) or tan(tan(x)) never fail to excite my imagination as these
simplest of functions tend towards machinic limits in graphic calculation;
there's no end to 'em but there's always an end to 'em dependent on the
machine/algorithm. i suppose the calculation could be carried out
indefinitely just like the raster here supported from 20-400 could be
downed to the pixel, but then what? everything else is either force or
averaging. one's caught in the usual digital trap, that what is of
interest must be evidenced within a bandwidth that most likely has little
relation to what's of interest. the bars keep information out, peripheral
or problematic information, troubling information, alterity. w/in these
images/imaginaries, nothing more than that, alterity comes back, corrodes,
with a vengeance, but not really; the merging of the two produces beauty
which is always the case.
