The Variations for Magic Square. A Cybernetics Poetry
The work is a database consists of letters and sounds. Letters are composed of series. Certain letters are attributed to sounds. The piece starts from a static position. User interacts with it through a mouse by clicking choosen letters and in that way he lets to run series of letters and the sounds which are ascribed to them. With F11 of keyboard you can enlarge view and with F5 you restart all. By pushing button of a mouse you start sequences, by rolling over letters you stop them. This dynamic structure in its sense is oscilating between possible meanings of randomness sequences and pure game of signifiers with an aesthetic charm. The piece of art offers immensity of possibilities. The quantity of variations which we can create amounts 36 raised to the power of 24. It is out of human perception capability to scrutinize them all. Although it is not a case to study it in entire extent. The aim is to play with it, to fun and also to find the permutations which will be interesting because of its audiovisual virtue and its experience.
