The process of transformation from text to geometry, an antagonic game that allows for shapes to be born.
These shapes that may appear as random, are actually issued and governed by the connection of the words "art" and "artist", in this case using as a generator, chapter 27 of such an enigmatic text as The Story of Art by Gombrich, is.
Text is here the producer of shapes that will be unknown until the final connection between those words is made.
The use of these two words that are so open and so limited at the same time, show the way art as an institution and the artist as creator and slave of what pushes him to create, will always be the parameters under which the artwork would be determined.
