Articulating Thresholds: The Threshold as a Framework for Artistic Experimentation with Indeterminacy

Ally Bisshop

I present a proposition for thinking-through-making that asks, What if we consider the threshold as a framework for experimenting with the indeterminacy that arises between thought and action, between philosophy and art practice? I propose that the threshold allows us to understand processual artistic practices whose modes of composition are sensitive to the affective power of material-forces—th...
