    Permutations29 (2005)
Permutations29, three images of twelve

Images and sounds. In the larger image (launch) there are a multiplicity of readings ricocheting in all directions. The explanation from Paul Nurse in the upper left hand corner, (which unfortunately can not be heard here)explaining how identifying genes, decriptiing them is just the beginning - he asks how are we to understand genes in relation to each other, as systems. I think it the same with images, in this format- from Gaugin to Yinka Shonibare and the liminal encounter of each other in the system of this tableaux. Here meaning rebounds, moves across times, opens up here and then there, nested in meaning, distributed in a continual present.
