The movement of information is about fluidity and dissolution. Imprinting a material substance into digital information dissolves elements of its objective sensuousness while reconstituting them as a malleable fluid, able to reshape and reconfigure itself in relation to its observer. The constant movement of the sea of information continues this cycle of dissolution until all bonds to the original are eroded. This new dissolved form of information has become so fluid that it no longer holds itself together in any intelligible way; with its relation lost to its original, it becomes pure information.
