    The Squiggle Sense of anticipation~reaction: Only anticipation, only reaction, either anticipation or reaction, both anticipation and reaction, anticipation changing to reaction, reaction changing to anticipation, between anticipation and reaction, neither anticipation nor reaction, beyond anticipation and reaction..

Since 2011, Pavlovic has worked together with the Artist~Neuroscientist David Engstrøm on a new art movement called "The Metastabilian Movement". The vision, concepts, method and criticism of this art movement are based on an appreciation, respect and inspiration for 'the complementary nature'. The philosophy of this movement is grounded in the newer science of coordination called "Coordination Dynamics", pioneered by the eminent neuroscientist J. A. Scott Kelso. Both Pavlovic and Engstrøm see an exciting opening terrain for creativity~discovery in this movement. In that spirit have both dubbed themselves "Metastabilian Artists" or "Metastabilians".
