A categorical accumulation of abstract patterns. Lines, colours and sounds obey an impenetrable logic. A quiet film that dares to be resolutely experimental. #57 is the result of an encounter between chaotic equations by the Chinese mathematician Wang Lin, an analog computer, Joost Rekveld, and a small battery of surplus high-frequency oscillators previously used for testing military and medical sonar equipment.
