ARTS IN PUBLIC SPACE
WITHOUT FRAME NO PICTURE - then with the invention of the frame, the picture came first and that got into into the picture-room.
With the invention of the frame, the picture was born as a window into the Imagination. With the sharp limit, the creation of prospective illusion becomes first possible. The frame is as it were the jump edge for the entrance into the imaginary space flight. The frame is the boundary between the expansion of an outside world and the expansion of an inner world - a boundary of that even already approaches expansion again, and therewith picture character.
With the frame, a further picture between picture and surroundings (between illusion and reality) pushes itself. Therewith the events step into an interaction field between the reality of the picture and the graphic quality of the reality. Therefore we go the step and say: THE FRAME IS THE PICTURE – THE MEDIUM IS THE MESSAGE – THE FORM THE CONTENTS.
The frame is however again likewise the sign, and before the picture was the sign - the sign was as it were pre-picture for the picture.
