"During the first decades of the twentieth century, artistic direction in Europe moved toward totally abstract visual expression. This trend coincided with revolutionary advances in science and technology, such as Sigmund Freud's development of psychoanalytic theory and explication of the role of the unconscious, and Albert Einstein's theory of relativity. City life was changing too, with the pervasive presence of electric lights, automobiles, and skyscrapers."

now, here is my question for you-- does nanotechnology make you feel more abstract or less? do you at least feel more psychic? what visually do you see when you consider an autobiography of your life in this century? Is abstraction an extension or rip chord?
