Nurbs: Non Uniform Relational Basis Splines: Non Uniformity: A Freeform Surface
How to make a map like Borges described in his fable? It must be a nurbs map, and to do so the cartographer must realize that the map should return to his body.
To make a landscape become a map of body. The paint becomes skin, the texture and brush strokes become the pokes and wrinkles.literati painting is this kind of painting practice. It undergoes the body as it character: a painting of sensation, the creativity of body experience. In a literati landscape, imaging is becoming body, and so on it emphasizes immanence. A literati painting doesn’t lead to significance. It is about the possiblities of imaging on the surface.
The practice of literati painting is neither to link the painting to the conception of painting’s history nor to create a style which represents an artist’s individual history. It is to use the brush to erase the history from the surface of the painting.
