Architectures on the border and border | Luis Gil

If the edge, as a boundary or border, can only be approached by force (energy in a pure state without cultivating) or the strategy attached to its concretion, the technique (the invention that allows acting to deceive adversity), history architectures gestated at the border it has also materialized in a double formalization.

The border of contact, encounter and exchange space | Luis Gil

The intrinsic nature of the border is that of being an area of danger, an insecure space in which the development of the essential tasks of life requires a state of continuous alertness. It is the space for the exchange of energy, where it is released or integrated into new areas, which implies a constant rebalancing of the forces acting […]

The plan as a tool for border overflow | Luis Gil

The border as a tense space that opposes its transit, requires effort, determination, formal or fundamental change to be transgressed and overcome or inhabited temporarily or continuously.

The movement and walking is innate to the activity of man, for various reasons, from the great migrations and movements in the search for Paleolithic hunting to the present day. A movement that was originally forced by the need to survive against the adverse nature, much earlier than the subsequent sedentary and articulation of man with the territory through the […]

Allegory of the border and the limit | Luis Gil

The neoliberal actuality that we have had to live makes it difficult, like no other, to refer behaviors, events and attitudes to a stable horizon, a concrete framework that serves as an articulator, as an element of dialogue and background to the analysis of a hardly acotable contemporaneity, nothing defined and a rapid emptying of contents, whose ultimate goal seems […]
