Re: Too mach balanced too mach control

Some of you brought up Cubism as an example which is in line with my point. Earlier in the thread, Fritchie mentioned that computer technology solves the problem of contending with gravity.

"My principal take on the computer is that it frees a sculptor from gravity, and if you like, even material."

If, in theory, something like Cubism or Futurism bypasses the problem of gravity, then why should a bit of technology be better equipped to lay the foundation for a new artistic movement? Essentially, a computer presents a linear/direct construct of an idea, while "limiting" disciplines appear circuitous in their offering of a new language by which we are to understand the same idea.
