Puzzling picture of Pascal Dangin

I've always been puzzled by the picture on the right:

I realize those are some odd curves for the RGB channels, but does he actually use this technique in high end retouching? What is this technique, this graph, etc.?

Or is it just some random picture The New Yorker thought would be good in mystifying retouching?

Odd question for a retoucher.
I'd wager it's a comp made by the mag to make him look like a mystic or modern day Einstein. I doubt he's actually drawing on that screen, If it's actually even there.

that is actually the fuggizit curve technique that was pioneered way back when in germany by this graphic artist named Diesel Ullengrab back when the first edition of photoshop came out. Its rarely seen or used in todays age, but it was very complex in terms of how it handled channels and pixels

It's like that movie "Hackers".....the film depicts hacking as this graphics-heavy virtual experience because to depict a real hacker doing what he does would be visually pretty boring.
That graph sure is cheesy though.
