Trying to decipher meaning of a word Runegraph is not at all an easy task. Naturally, the first idea is to look up a dictionary where one finds that the nearest notion is runegraphy (Goth rune, Gk graph(os), drawn, written ), runic letter, runes. Looking up a word rune (Goth, pl. secrets) one finds it connotes straight-line letters used by old Germanic peoples until they met and accepted Latin characters. The oldest runic alphabet has 24 signs.
Does this explanation in any way relate to a device under a name of Runegraph? In a world of non-Euclidean geometry this may even be so, but in our ordinary world resting upon Euclid's idea, it is not the case! As a matter of fact, the Runegraph is a device drawing lines, curved lines, actually a long, unbroken line, and the last thing it can (but actually cannot) draw is a straight line. To cut a long story short, this magic device - bungled from wood, copper, little bit of plastic, brass and iron with inbuilt ‘chips’ from 60ies computers and engines from up-to-date printers and plotters - this device draws. It draws with coal, crayon and air brush. It does not literally draw on its own, but rather follows an instruction given by the artist or it draws according to a previously set up algorithm. Actually, using an ‘old’ technology is what gives charm to the device, its working and its drawings.
