Processes as Gestalt

Research question

Is it possible to express dynamics, i.e. processes, as gestalt(en)?


The conventional conception of gestalt is to conceive it as a static entity. What if also processes, or at least some processes, own a morphology specific for them, and what if such morphologies can be expressed as gestalten? Gestalt differs from a (mere) pattern: every gestalt can be interpreted in terms of pattern, but not every pattern is eo ipso a gestalt. An experiment has been tried in our project Moving Art.
