Antagonism

// Stefan Endres

A signboard shows the aphorism “Do not explain overmuch“ by the spanish philosopher Baltasar Garcián in original language and translation. In parallel, a system consisting of two antagonistic classes of particles, based on physical laws of attraction, infinitely generates image and sound. Neither image nor audio files are accessed – any acoustic and visual impulse is purely calculated in real-time.

This combination of generative art with a slice of philosophy questions the influence of interdigitations between aesthetics and (not) given context and indicates information, cognitive perception and their relation to each other as fundamental parts of communication.
