"Turbulence"
constrained to grid


A system of constrained points is placed into the Hudson River. Movements are tracked and recorded.

Shows a snapshot-duration in time, of the forces moving along the system... converging and diverging as flows act on the field:

Crumpling|Condensing of quantities and intensities of line. Movements within movements: rippling of surface within tidal waves. The use of line through multiplicities of scale allows the simultaneous reading of many different conditions, including time, overall trajectories of wave flow, smaller ripples within waves, the expansion and contraction of aquatic fields, and the underlying grid which constrains movements.

Tension between liquid and line creates order. The field is thus epigenetic: both formed by and forming flows.
