‘Chaos theory studies the behavior of dynamical systems that are highly sensitive to initial conditions, an effect which is popularly referred to as the butterfly effect. Small differences in initial conditions (such as those due to rounding errors in numerical computation) yield widely diverging outcomes for such dynamical systems, rendering long-term prediction impossible in general’ – This quote is taken from Wikipedia, so I can’t vouch for its accuracy, but you get the general idea……
This chaos is one of the reasons that I haven’t been painting as much as I would like to recently:
However, unlike the ‘small differences in initial conditions’ that give rise to the butterfly effect, I am certain of the outcome of these conditions & their variations – no work is ever going to be produced on this table in its current state! Time to get tidying…..
Update: time has passed…..work has begun & productive chaos reigns
