Vector Field - The Very Many

In his January 15, 2007 entry The Very Many explores vector fields as an organizing system for the circulation and presentation areas of a gallery. He positions this project in terms of Greg Lynn, "from 'animate' rules, to shift in morphology, to mutate . . . "LE CHAMP"- has been the most litterally expressed via a field vectors, actual device support for presentation panels which should be simply laser-cut onto a full spectrum of colored acrylic panels."

I am intrigued by the graphics (and I know there is more to this than just graphics).

I then decided to visit

Please correct me if I am wrong, as I am "skimming" the original content. From what I understand the interior of the gallery can be designed in such a way to be most efficient--efficiency in what? I don't know--given the limited space. So I am guessing the available content is but an initial hypothesis that the space can be "calculated" to be the most efficient if methodologies similar to that of engineering/physics are applied.

Then I assume... multiple vector fields will be overlapped in the same interior space to create moments of "clashing" given that a free plan is most cases is not an orchestrated promenade. Perhaps when multiple vector fields are overlapping then multiple experiences can be extracted from the combination. And of course this assumption is based on that one vector field only describes one experience and one possibility.

The content being studied here is pretty sweet!
After reading this entry and a few other of his postings, I am wondering how then would this relate back to our study of movement. It seems that The Very Many is exploring movements that don't change velocity, keeping the pace of movement at a set pace. Where we are studying movement at different velocities at different points. So I'm then wondering how would you find a way to manipulate the script to take in effect the change in velocity. I'm looking forward to how this matures through the weeks.
