preferred geometry...
.
.

.
.

...:::...there is a division of mathematics called topology that i have been reading about. people who work in this field try to explain things like why two objects, such as a donut and a coffee cup with a handle, are really the same (they call these abstract mathematical spaces 'manifolds')..."each has a single hole and can be manipulated to resemble the other without being torn or cut." and yet, while this malleability is possible, there is a 'preferred geometry' that manifolds take on...i think of it as a personality...

and even though they can take on different forms, there is an intrinsic desire for how they want to express themselves...how (or what) they want to be...(a piece of fabric draped over a mannequin may as well be the folds of the universe?)...

i've been thinking a lot about this idea of a 'preferred geometry'...(38-24-37) as it relates to creative forms...as things are made of materials and as to how they are conceived and perceived. i think it is the work of an artist to develop a dialogue with a medium (an open channel)...to be receptive to how an idea interfaces phenomenologically...for it to know what it wants to be and to understand that it may shift in time...it is only natural that things are not always clear in their direction: ambiguity is at the core of reason and emotion. desire is never static...:::...

i like how you approach topology from the perspective of the artist- my introduction was through Deleuze' book on Foucault, where he makes use of conceptual aspects of topology to re-express relations between thought, power, knowledge, and their constitution of our social field.

'every form is a compound of relations between forces'..'recuperated by power-relations and relations of knowledge, the relation to oneself is continually reborn, elsewhere and otherwise.'

its abstract but rewarding,an experimental philosophy attempting to think what was perhaps previously 'unthinkable'..

thanks for the great selection of music, will be testing some of it out tonight at our house party after optimo's bi-annual destruction of the reading rooms in dundee, scotland!
