Gins holds a radical degree in poetry from the unrelenting universe.
Mostly her poetry doesn't look like poetry at all; occasionally,
as in this instance, it straightens its tie or straightens up and
flies wrong. Having begun in the early 1960's to use art to investigate

century artist Arakawa, can be counted a pioneer of cognitive science
- but with the inquiry originating from the artist's end of things.
In 1997, the Guggenheim Museum Soho mounted a show of their combined
work, both The Mechanism of Meaning, the research project
that is the forerunner of cognitive science and contemporary autopoiesis
