Example text

If we imagine the input as a sequence of overlapping phrases, the algorithm divides each phrase into two parts, a multi-word prefix and a single suffix word that follows the prefix. A Markov chain algorithm emits output phrases by randomly choosing the suffix that follows the prefix, according to the statistics of the original text. Chapter 3 Kinetic Form Kinetic is a term used to describe a situation related to, or produced by, motion. Motion is the act or process of changing position or place over time.

Stephen Bann, New York: New York Graphic Society, 1968. J. ) Kinetic Art: Theory and Practice, Selections from the Journal Leonardo, New York: Dover, 1974. 3 On the one hand Zeno can argue that the sum 1/2+1/4+1/8+…never actually reaches 1, but more perplexing to the human mind is the attempt to sum 1/2+1/4+1/8+…backwards. Before traversing a unit distance we must get to the middle, but before getting to the middle we must get 1/4 of the way, but before we get 1/4 of the way we must reach 1/8 of the way, etc.

Unfolding and then folding back can happen repeatedly and yet at any moment there are only two possibilities. This obviously evident, yet redundantly important property reveals a repetitive pattern of events where time is of no importance. Instead, the focus is set to the in-between time span when folding is understood as “potentiality”. For instance, a folded sheet is not understood as an isolated, independent, or complete object but rather as a hidden, latent, or virtual potentiality to deploy.
