originally the idea was to tag two and two images with relational
adjectives as a way of public curating a collection of abstract
images, based on the idea that properties arise out of relations -
system theory somewhat. finally i went for this almost short-circuited
version of curating the adjectives themselves... maybe as curator art
- an autopoiesis
