Meta is more than a term, especially in art.
It stands for a connective layer of abstraction between the complexities of things.
It creates a self-explaining clarity that never loses it’s meaning nor it’s connection to the originating idea.
Like the consistent relationship between form and function.
But it does not only mean to think in between, meta implicates to go beyond.
As a metamorphosis it stands for rearrangement and variation.
