There is an inherent quality of digital media that lends itself to elaboration on the idea of abstraction, especially Minimalism, as a practice. It allows for an ability to further the dialogue about the reduction of form, action and idea to their most basic elements, pure information, which approaches the point most near non-existence; a space similar to that of traditional (written) language.
I am pondering the similarity to the storage of information in the brain, as well as the dissipation of information in the brain. On the same note, but on a macro scale, there seems to be a parallel to information sent as wave-from (radio, light, etc.) and its atrophy as it traverses space away from Earth (or any other source.)
What function do the rate of demise and the ability to decode/translate/recycle have on a work of art's (or anything's) value? Is the value of a vehicle for communication married to its ability to be translated?
