What is entropy? Looking for perfection the one true cause of all disease.

be disruptive

Art needs a dash of anarchy, be disruptive. Everything changes. All the time.

Keep organized and beware of the anarchy of chaos and art clutter, chaos is not just periods of all orders. As the resolution increases the size of the picture increases, but the amount of information may not. There is a difference between the ludicrous beauty of mathematical structures and that of great art.

Science and innovation are a perfectly imperfect chaos, stochastic processes that cannot be governed and controlled by desk-bound planners and politicians, whatever their intentions. One possible escape from that hell is being into things that are considered art.

psychological entropy

The desire to combat uncertainty and maintain control has long been considered a primary and fundamental motivating force in human life. Any element of a picture requires the image to decide on its meaning, because no artist likes to go into chaos and create order.

Our risk aversion may prove the greatest block to our becoming an innovative art maker. Life is too precious and too fleeting to waste my time on bad art.

What is entropy?

It is therefore impossible to give a verbal description of it, which is, at the same time, an accurate definition.

The key is getting the public to realize that science is a work in progress, an honorably self-correcting endeavor carried out in good faith (H. Holden Thorp).

It ought to be remembered that there is nothing more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things.

Assiduity makes all things easy.

Singular art

Invisible riddle, there is a reality that is independent of what we measure or observe.

Perhaps the only clear conclusion that can be drawn from this page is that secret silly drawings have made an already confusing picture of the origins of art even fuzzier.

Chaotic artworks work on no principle whatsoever, the given theorem is plain bizarre.

Richard T. Cox, The algebra of probable inference

Artists engaging with scientific methods are confident the model to be plausible. P((B|A)|(A|B)) represents the probability that you'll mix up the order of the terms when using Bayesian notation. Proof by analogy is fraud.

By exploring the painterly gesture subject to chance and intuition, in relation to digital modes of image making, the artist observes how machines imitate people and people imitate machines. (ref)

Always ask what an artist wants out of the visit. Never promise anything.

Chaos is the mother of Eros and Nyx.

Khaos the Greek god of unpredictability

Artwork by Czech artist Jiri-Sliva. Stochastic art was the science of applied probability for meaningful patterns, but unfortunately this original meaning is now largely unknown, and the word has come to mean of randomly spotted pictures of random spots.
