A to B : Frontiers & Movements

Call it “cheap structuralism”, because it is what it is. Or topography.

Here I choose to casually watch two territories, A and B.

It can be two apartments, two countries, but also two states (healthy/sick, or single/in couple), two styles, two blogs, anything by two.

Then you can begin to play :

  • If there’s a A and a B there’s a frontier. What is it made of?
  • Is it a line, like between two countries? Is it a wall? Symbolic?
  • A place (called C) which is a “space between”?
  • Do you have to study or focus on C?
  • Is there a door or many doors? Who opens, closes?
  • A bridge? Who build it?
  • Are A and B bonded? By what?
  • A and B can be different things (a house/outside) or the same nature (two people?)
  • When you have A and now also B, you own both. Kill the frontier, or keep both distinct territories inside you, like two facets? Like the two Germanies?
  • A becomes B is a mutation. Then where’s the border?
  • Rubicon process : once you crossed the border, A doesn’t “exist” for you anymore. Burnt bridge!

The tool is funny to use : determine if your problem can be structured as A and B (Do I have to live in the same place as my lover? Should I merge my two blogs? What is convalescence?).

Thanks for reading!
