Gilles Deleuze's theory of "The Fold"

alt

A model for expression in contemporary aesthetics, the concept of the monad(.) is viewed in terms of folds of space, movement, and time. Similarly, the world is interpreted as a body of infinite folds and surfaces that twist and weave through compressed time and space. According to Deleuze events and history are multifaceted combinations of signs in motion. “Modern” subject is nomadic, always in the process of becoming.

(.)Monad Monad (from Greek μονάς monas, "unit" in turn from μόνος monos, "alone"), refers in cosmogony (creation theories) to the first being, divinity, or the totality of all beings.
