I try to outline the relationships using a formula.

That would be mathematics. Factors that could stand for something.

There is the possibility of a formula applied at different levels.

Of course it's interesting when one notes that one can develop a formula that is then applied to other contexts, but I have no idea of it.

On the other side I see the use of moments and fields, which doesn't come close to the manifestation of a formula.

An uncertainty principle.

To orbit gestures, actions and places.

The experiment to take something that is not to be brought to the point. Otherwise you would have a fixed term of it.

Perhaps more a kind of a module instead of a formula.

Connections, which create new images in between.

Like film cuts, which indicate a new space, which has not been visualized but can prevail only.

Which is, so to speak, between the cuts…

Which is on the adhesive edge.
