II. LIMITS OF MODELING:
Evolutionary Design


All hi-tech contemporary artworks are summoned to amend our consciousness and expand it beyond cultural conventionalities and personal ambitions. New technologies generate information. In so doing, they generate new patterns and paradigms that were previously unacceptable or simply incomprehensible to the imagination alone. People have yet to discover a personal way of ‘letting things flow’.
