October 4, 2015: the edge as something, not just a line

Many interesting responses regarding yesterday's question of whether an installation perpetually in progress is more interesting--for maker and viewer--than a polished display of discrete, well-made objects.

One way to address this issue is to look at a similar pair of opposites: chaos and order. Chaos can be either liberating or tiresome. Order can be, over time, clarifying or dull.

Finally, the last word from a friend is that the edges between opposites are significant. I see now that if they are too narrow, heavy, or tense, the balance can tip over into trash or rigidity--either of which breaks the inclusiveness of opposite points of view.

The edge as something, not just a line, is a place of suspension, like a suspension bridge between two land masses. It needs to be strong enough to hold the separate sides together.
