Linear Projects




THE LINE

THE LINE is defined by two points. One point is the onset of the first walk by the Institute for Linear Research (guesthouse Sücka, Liechtenstein) the other one is the coordinate of the first exhibition on remoteness by the ILR (Palazzo Trevisan, Venice).
︎︎︎To become a member of the ILR, you may chose a point on THE LINE, go there and start walking along THE LINE, explore remoteness, send your findings to the Institute for Linear Research and publish your research in the Infinite Publication Series and contribute to THE LINE: Atlas of Remoteness
Parallels

Parallels are lines offset from THE LINE, anywhere on earth. Each new parallel extends the emerging linear coordinate system which is ordered by directionality rather than distance.
︎︎︎To become a collaborator of the ILR, you may chose a point on the Earth and draw a Parallel to THE LINE, embark on a collaboration with the ILR along the Parallel, exploring remoteness through Linear Research and together with the ILR compile your findings and publish them in the IPS’s Linear Archive within the series Parallels: Atlas of Remoteness
a line

a line is an imaginary line without curvature projected on the earth.
︎︎︎To become a contributor to the Atlas of Remoteness, you may chose a line on the Earth, get a Linear Logbook from the ILR, walk along the chosen line, map remoteness and send the logbook to the Institute to be published on the IPS’s Linear Archive






Linear Research


Linear Research is based on imposing non-effective, imaginary lines on contemporary landscapes. Not to be confused with its conceptual opposite: effective lines, such as territorial borders. Methods of Linear Research include, but are not limited to Linear Walking and Linear Mapping.


Linear Walking
Linear Walking is understood as the locomotion of the human body and includes but is not limited to ambulating, climbing, canoeing, swimming and roping in a straight line across a given territory
Linear Mapping
Linear Mapping means the translation of sensory experience, reasoning or imaginations that occur during linear walks to paper
Linear informational research
Linear informational research relates to retrieving and connecting information of any kind related to spaces crossed by a straight line
