Abstract

Deleuze and Guattari offer three playful but coded journeys onto the broad arena they call 'the task of art' -- where task, not to mention art, is meant to spill into, reconfigure and/or destroy the varying pragmatic-spatio-temporal intensities one might otherwise call 'life'. These three journeys can be listed thus: that of an immanent 'becoming-x'; that of the ever-sporing 'rhizome'; and that of the a-radical, surface-structured, non-rooted 'refrain'. Once we re-think the terms via Mandelbrot's fractal geometry, an entire new environment emerges. This is the unedited version of the Fractal Philosophy piece that later went into the Deleuze and Art collection.
