The Cleft*

Filed under: General — Tags: , — m759 @ 10:31 PM

From this  journal on October 18, 2018

“Show all” — Yes!

*Update to the above post from the morning after:

The title uses “cleft” rather than Gaitskill’s term for the
pictured bifurcation, “crotch.” This is in part because
the former yielded search results in this journal, while
the latter did not.

Raum und Zwischenraum*

An Internet search for "Raum und Zwischenraum " this morning
led to a Munich artist who reportedly died on Nov. 11, 2012.

See also Warburg + Cornell in this journal.

"Yet if this Denkraum ,  this 'twilight region,'  is where the artist and
emblem-maker invent, then, as Gombrich well knew, Warburg also
constantly regrets the 'loss' of this 'thought-space,' which he also
dubs the Zwischenraum  and Wunschraum ."

“Ikonologie des Zwischenraums”

Filed under: G-Notes,General,Geometry — Tags: , , — m759 @ 9:29 AM

The title is from Warburg. The Zwischenraum  lines and shaded "cuts"
below are to be added together in characteristic two, i.e., via the
set-theoretic symmetric difference  operator.
