The line in the mind.

 

 

A body in which gravity plays a dominant role cannot be rigid.

To make flat / flexible / instable pieces is to retain / attain a high degree of unfinishedness.

 


(It is possible to distinguish between a line which is perceived by the mind purely as a carrier of thought / of information (diagrammatic), and a line which is perceived as a purely visual experience.

Or: in how far can the perception of a line be a purely visual experience?
Can different 'sculptures' do only one or the other?

How can lines, identical in essence, produce this difference / evoke different responses?

 

What role do angles, direction, or singularities play? 

Whenever two lines meet at a right angle information is added, something extra that changes the nature of the line and shifts the perception from the visual to the 'conceptual' and 'diagrammatic'. 

In a shape without edges, angles, 'singularities' etc. the nature of the paradox revealed is more subtle and fundamental - the paradox comes as if from the inside of the line.)
