Misc. Comments

"The book of dice" poem by Alberto Blanco is collaterally reread and homage to the most celebrated poem by Stéphane Mallarmé "A stroke of dice will never abolish chance" but here are the technological processes that make the computer re-reading the poem in its collateral damages”. The machine re-read straight, backwards, at different speeds, at the same time, this creates new textures in low and high pitches mixed in unrecognizable texts but become musical text-ures, the origin of this word, echoes that introduce a kind of hypnosis where you no longer know which is perceived, if it was heard or 'déjà vu " or something already experienced.

The collateral damages are several: first assessing the appreciation of the depth of the text in the physical space through translucent cube manufacturing by Alberto Blanco where you can read the text to different degrees of depth and dilution. Furthermore the described situation trans-text by the technological digital processes finally ordering of all these elements in a different agencyements provided by the trans-diciplinarity of different views of the same object, referring to "roll of the dice" launched by Mallarmé more than a hundred years ago.
