Seismic

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

Today I was thinking about the map-fold for the Signifier-Signified booklets and yesterday’s reference to ‘sedimentation’, so I looked at seismic profiling images on Google images.  They have the quality of a brass-rubbing – soft and imprecise, yet with a rigorous underlying graph structure.  I think this will be the quality I will aim for in Word:Mass.  Tomorrow I think I will try taking a rubbing of a stack of books – maybe all the books on my shelves – using graph paper.
