This paper study displays 17 actual saw cuts. Yet six cuts were made. By applying quantum brushstrokes I’m able to multiple the events on the curved surface before we observe it on the 2D picture plane.
These two paper studies show how one drill hole and two saw cuts (ie, similar energy forces were involved) can produce different results depending upon the membrane configuration at the time of creation. Quantum brushstrokes.

Art like everything else repeats itself. So if we were to suppose that today we are about the cycle of 1960 (when the art market supposively went from strength to strength), then the question might be: What is the modern-day equivalent of Metzger’s ADA manifesto (an Absolute aesthetic idea) that can present a real alternative to the artworld of which he deplored? The answer may evolve through subcultures but it’s only through ‘Absolute aesthetic ideas‘ that provide the artist with a common philosophy or goal, so that he or she, or collective group, can bring about a sense of purpose and direction that may thrive once again outside the art market.
Metzger may not have achieved his ambition to smash the commercial gallery system. His legacy was his ability to inspire a collective consciousness in all things — an idea that I think still remains relevant today.

2 cuts become 5 on the 2D surface when you apply quantum brushstrokes.
Experimental work on paper: The trajectory path the string followed was a straight line in the curled up ‘complete’ space of when it was created. Now when we observe it on the 2D picture plane (human viewpoint) the string appears to be networked differently. For more see Quantum brushstrokes
