    Line: the extension of a point along one axis; a long narrow mark on a surface; the trace of a moving point

    The goal of the project is to study the properties of lines: its length to width ratio (thick, thin, long, short), its contour (curved, straight), and its degree of continuity (smooth, jagged). In addition, the project explores explicit line which is visible lines that exist in physical forms and implicit line which is subtly perceived line that are made when viewers’ mind connects separate elements along an axis.
