Art by Reduction

"To create order and art is to selectively reduce the information needed to specify something." 

“Entropy (is) the amount of information needed to specify the exact physical state of a system.  ..   The entropy of an isolated system always increases or remains constant ..
Therefore entropy is an expression of disorder.”   Wikipedia

 “Michelangelo said he could sense the figure in the uncut stone; his job was to chip away marble till it emerged.”    (The attribution may be apocryphal.)
