When I think of things, I always think about "boudaries" around them.
Architecture and Ceramics, Digital and Analog, Inside and Outside, Artifical and Nature, Chaos and Order Hence, it is not something you can clearly differentiate, like 0 and 1 in digital code, like black and white.
Rather, an infinity of degrees actually exist between 0 and 1, and an infinite grading of shades exist between black and white. A boundary is not a simple line.
Something we could describe as a "fuzzy boundary" can also exist.
Once I stop to separate everything by one line, looking through this perspective; arises many silently hidden places.
Wondering through the center of the infinite, suffering and strugging - I strive to look for my own place.
This open minded adventure much like own life, is incredibly enjoyable.
