  I enjoyed Joshua's newsletter. It's not like we're being deluged with
so much great information through this list these days that we have to
limit the flow. Artists are starting to use these techniques in all
sorts of ways; I'm glad to see more of that. Jonathan's "tangles" might
not be G.Sach's aesthetic cup of tea, but that doesn't mean they're not
art. People with limited aesthetic perspectives often tend to
characterize what they like as "art" and the things they can't relate to
or don't understand as something else; it's a pretty useless distinction
to make, IMHO. I don't know why the members of this list would be
interested in Mr. Sachs' aesthetic judgements; we're all capable of
making up our own minds on these matters. Perhaps Mr.Sachs has more
interesting things to share with us, but I vastly preferred Mr.
Harker's newsletter to the words quoted below.
