Navigation through the modern world is no longer linear; the thread cannot serve as a model for its description. In bit.flow mk2 dozens of tiny pieces of the metaphorical “red thread” constitute a chaotic swarm of particles or bits, the smallest elements of information. The signs produced by bit.flow mk2 move through the tube in a particular order from beginning to end. At a certain point, they are unexpectedly recombined in the order of Ariadne’s thread and allow for decoding. But we can only recognise and perceive this bulk of information at particular times, from certain perspectives, as letters in a complex interplay: order in chaos, chaos in order.
