On Local Maxima


In math, and economics–thanks to its 40-year-run of mathematicity–there’s this nice distinction between global maxima and local maxima. If you assume a bounded space, and assume that space includes rationality, consumption, writ however, then all you have before you, all you can maximize has to be maximized in that local space.

Let’s try that in art, eh? Let’s try to maximize local opportunities and roll with that for a while. Let’s not try to look out for global maxima ’cause within most bounds it ain’t gunna happen, though you might just luck into ’em. And, yes, getting mentioned in long articles is nice.

Oh, that Artsy article.
