On the contrary, the essence of Wall's "near documentary" (and now "near near documentary") approach consists precisely in the overt tension between the absorptiveness and antitheatricality of his chosen motifs and the artifactuality and to-be-seen-ness (I'm stopping just short of saying "theatricality") of his autograph means of presentation (perhaps we can think of this as a tension between representation and presentation).
Researchers at the University of Manitoba (Department of Food Science, Winnipeg, MB R3T 2N2, Canada) measured the wetting properties of whey-protein-coated paper, including water absorption rate and maximum water absorptiveness, with the goal of improving its performance as a surface sizing agent or pigment adhesive for food packaging material.
Whey protein coating also accelerated the water absorption rate and increased maximum water absorptiveness.
In the field of terahertz wireless communications--a technology expected to find practical applications in the near future--it is crucial for engineers to accurately analyze the characteristics of the materials they work with, such as permittivity and absorptiveness.
