1. The interface exists in the crease between space and time; it is a device and simultaneously a situation. It is rendered (updated under thoughtful conditions) and emergent (joining into something new).


This tenet was the most interesting, mostly because of how it was worded - it seemed to imply some supernatural or cosmic force necessary in creating an interface. The idea of it being simultaneously two different things once again brought to mind the principle of Schrodinger's Cat, specifically how it is not distinguishable as either thing until it is utilized in some way, and does not truly show its capabilities until the user "performs" either it or with it. It also emphasizes the work put into making an interface, such as the research behind whether the physics will work, the final presentation, and its practicality, and thus it is both rendered and emergent. The first example of this that comes to mind is the telematic art where people can interact with other people from almost the other side of the globe through a simple screen and some complex programming.
