Product Description

"If it is somehow identifiable as part of a referential system, we immediately understand the meaning of a line on a piece of paper. A horizontal line will be easily read as a minus, an em dash or a way on a map, no matter how sloppily it is written or drawn."

'Resisting Exactitude', a short text by Yara Feghali and Iulia Nistor, leads the reader through cases where the line, transferred from the abstract to the physical, turns out to be different than intended, and can be both problematic or productive. Chapters include 'City, plot, land demarcation', 'Room, wall, corner', 'Paper, hand, drawing' and 'Mind, thinking, definition'.
