“Those aren’t lines,” you said, when you looked at the photos of siding, concrete, a door and a box top. Then you smugly added, “those are the edges of forms.” “The printed abstractions on the top of the box of business cards are the only lines among the bunch,” you snorted.
Well, you were right. The lines we draw are the edges of forms we see in nature. Have you ever seen a line sitting all by itself, or sliding across the lawn? Do lines entangle you as you go through your day? Was that one I saw hiding next to the street lamp last night? Probably not. I wonder what it would be like to be jumped and caught in a huge knotty web of lines.
