FRAME IT!

Be sure that your (emerging) project involves FRAME


FRAME as means of identification, as means of designating systems abd subsystems

FRAME as bare bones, as underlying structure, as stabilizer, as support

FRAME as boundary, as line of inclusion, as line of exclusion

FRAME as aesthetic object, as ornamentation, as functional

FRAME as meaning building tool

FRAME as shaper

FRAME as space allocator

FRAME as entry and exit

FRAME as ladder

Here are some frames:

(from atv sweden where the frame may be experienced in its intended context)



(from BudgetSpex.com where the image may be experienced in its intended context)


(from Fox Maple School of Traditional Building where the image may be experienced in its intended context)



(Simplehuman U-Frame Dishrack from Kitchen Critic where the image may be experienced in its intended context)



(Problem Solver Bed Frame from Kennedy Company, Inc. where the image may be experienced in its intended context)



(from JAMD where Plane Frame may be experienced in its original context)



(Vest Framework Pattern [framework for "Sumptuously Sized Ladies"] from Wildly Wonderful Wearables where the frame may be experienced in its intended context)



(from Gallery Backyardz where Fatal Frame II may be experienced in its original context)


(from Carol Gimp.org where this extraction frame may be experienced in its intended context)



(from Rootsweb where the resting place of the Frames in Wallkill Cemetery May be experienced in the image's orginal context)

_______________________

In the context of (framed by your projects, that is to say) your projects
(that are still subject to reframing), please consider the following:

How necessary is the frame?

Does the frame grant permission not to consider what is outside it?

Can there be framelessness?

How might the degree of flexibility, degree of rigidity, and the substance/material of the frame affect what is framed and/or what is supported by the frame?

How might the frame be transgressed or overcome?

How stable need a frame be to function as a frame?

What about frames within frames?

What is the relationship between the framed and the frame? Between the frame and an observer outside the frame?

What happens when frames are active? Inactive?

What happens as frames are shifted? As a series of frames are negotiated?

And when frame frames frame?

What are (some of) the roles of frame in establishing/extending/breaking symmetry?

When the frame is a (form of) mirror?

A (form of) ladder?

Etc.

(ZelFlex Reusable Stencil frame from lpdfusa.com where this flexible frame may be experienced in its intended context)


(Relavity by M.C. Escher from
pep-web.org where I recommend that you not only experience Relativity in an intended context, but also experience the article Stairways of the Mind (all about a kind of framing) by Juhani Pallasmaa, Ph.D that you'll find there)

Please examine and comment on (framed by your project contexts) the framing that occurs in/on pages: 178, 28, 138, 162, 168, 157, 98, and 99 in Super Vision.

Please also examine the use of frames in Winter Voyage on pp. 601-604 and Scattering as Behavior Toward Risk on pp. 621-624 in Poems for the Millennium

Now to finish off the frame of this post
with three results from a youtube search for frame:

Here, King Crimson performs "Frame by Frame":

Also from youtube, "Layin Frame":

and an interview about the Nikon D3 Full Frame DSLR:

Hmm -how about the symmetry and framing possibilities in a consideration of puzzles and maps?
(hope this fits in well --puzzle pieces) in your project frames)
