The fold

imageI am looking at the fold as a means of expressing the overlap between inner and outer. The fold brings form into being and shows the curve of a single variable. The ideal fold is called a Zwiefalt; this is a fold that ceaselessly unfolds and folds back from both sides and has been likened to the unveiling and veiling of being.

Baltrusaitis defines the fold by scission; a scission which causes each of the split terms to set each other off anew.
