"With pencil on paper the mind explores the forms and structures through the line drawing them. That goes for most of the content in this issue of Pist Protta.
"It may be that the action of using the line to take notes by hand aids understanding and rememberance. I had that experience once when I tried to identify some plants collected in Italy where I am not familiar with the flora. To facilitate the comparisons, I drew all the plants in contour on a few sheets of paper — and during that process the forms of the plants became much easier to understand and recognize.
"Line literally means 'a linen thread,' and the sheer beauty of interweaving lines creates a texture that is close to both text and textile. It might work in at least two ways: that the lines create a meshwork or that the line is an analytic tool in understanding how a specific textile or other thing is made." — Åse Eg Jørgensen
