Euclid understood lines as ‘breadthless lengths,’ defined by two points and stretching on into infinity. But delineations can also be as small and simple as a flick of the wrist; the mind moving out of the hand into a gesture. Vassily Kandinsky believed lines to be ‘created by movement – specifically through the destruction of the intense self-contained repose of the point.’ Process is suggested; moments emerge from the continuity to form a rhythm. When the abstract becomes physical, delineations unite and exclude. Sociologist T.K. Oommen sees ‘the very story of human civilization’ in shifting and overlapping boundaries of all kinds. Whether blurred or accentuated, instantaneous or permanent, representational or manifest, intentional or happenstance, DELINEATIONS in the landscape are consequential. They have a story to tell.
GROUND UP invites your delineations. Where do you draw the line?
GROUND UP is a journal edited by the students of the Department of Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning at UC Berkeley. In this year’s 5th annual edition, DELINEATIONS, we’re calling on all students, academics, and professionals to think about what it means to them and how it relates to their work. We’re interested in reading about everything from the consequences of delineation as it relates to their field of research, to built and unbuilt work, etc. Typical entries are from 500 to 2000 words plus graphics. The call is open from NOW until January 7, 2016.
