These drawings are a methodical interpretation of the first two chapters of A Thousand Plateaus: Capitalism and Schzophrenia (Wikipedia link) by Gilles Delueze and Felix Guattari, translated by Brian Massumi, University of Minnesota Press, 1987.

The drawings were created as a means of understanding the ideas being presented in the book.

Each drawing is labeled by chapter and paragraph.

Marc sent these diagrams to Brian Massumi, the translator of A Thousand Plateaus into English, who is currently one of the editors of Inflexions, the online journal for research-creation. The first volume of the journal includes some of these diagrams in the Tangents section.

Quantal Strife Exhibit

Many of these drawings are part of a group art show called Quantal Strife. The show was commissioned by the Doris McCarthy Gallery in Scarborough, Ontario and exhibited in January to February of 2006.

Quantal Strife was curated by Sally Mckay and included the work of Crystal Mowry, Scott Carruthers and Marc Ngui.

Quantal Strife was also exhibited at the McMaster Museum of Art in Hamilton, Ontario in September and October 2007, and at Open Space gallery in Victoria, BC from January 26 to March 6 of 2008.
