Dear Steven &  public-xformsusers,

May they be work for such critical --which is interpretive and evaluative--
moments of onnovations (ornamental, complementary, and substitutive):
different approaches and perspectives or things which nuances on approaches
and perspectives:
"blobs" ever proposed by Greg Lynn and Brian Massumi and defined as "active
elements or 'primitives' which combine to generate their own space... Put a
number of blobs together, and their differential influnces on each other
produce unpredictable reciprocal deformations".

This is what could be red on "Kant, Art and Art History" by Mark A. Cheetam
(2001) where he attempted a model of disciplinary spatial affiliation
called "plasmatics". It went around those things with nuances: "plasm",
"plasma", plasmatics" and "blobs". Thus it may relate with Marcos Novak's
"Liquid Architecture".

Cheetam refered Massumi's " Interface and Active Space: Human-Machine
Design" available at http://www
anu.edu/HRC/first_and_last/links/massumi_works.htm

Regard,
Guntur Wiseno Putra
