Exerices 31 – Friday 3rd of November “Dividing”

Dividing”

Take an object or material of your choice, of any quality – soft, solid, fluid, immaterial, processed, built or fabricated. Divide it in half, depending on the material quality or aggregate, by pulling, tearing, cutting, poring, walking, waiting, thinking, drawing, throwing, blowing, burning, etc. Use tools or machinery as needed and ad libitum. Take one half and divide it in halves again, employing the same method as before. Take the resulting quarter and divide it in halves employing the same method as before. Take the resulting quarter and divide it in halves employing the same strategy as before. Continue until you reach a unit that cannot be divided any more with the chosen strategy.”
