Indexical Traces

Gravitational forces
Occurrence regularities
Predictable randomness

An indexical artwork is based on suggesting its creative process by function of a residual procedural trace. For a real world example, irregularly shaped pools of reflected radiation left on the beach at low tide reference the rise and fall of sea levels caused by combined gravitational forces applied by the Moon, the Sun, and the Earth’s rotation. Of course, most processes are deceptively complex. Here an amphidromic system also exists because of interference within oceanic basins, seas and bays interacting with the Coriolis Effect, creating tidal nodes.
