Meditations, Ruler

'Just carrying a ruler with you in your pocket should be forbidden, at least on a moral basis. The ruler is the symbol of the new illiteracy. The ruler is the symptom of the new disease, disintegration of our civilisation.'

Meditations Lee Woodman

"My meditations on Hundertwasser’s ‘ungodly straight line’ respond to the theory of Friedensreich Hundertwasser who spoke widely on the use of the human hand in drawing and architecture. He argued that living in houses made from straight lines which conformed to units and production restraints demanded by living in the modern age was ‘ungodly’ or inorganic. The variance and inconsistency of the human hand was held as precious and to be celebrated. I agree on the beauty of the organic line, but I disagree that we are removed from the organic by the straight line. 

Through repetition of the straight line I have meditated on Hundertwasser’s claim. I argue that the ‘organic’ comes through in these drawings. The lines are straight, but through variance of line thickness, direction and speed of stroke the result has an organic quality. I concede one could argue the drawings are machine-like, which gives room for the argument to the contrary. This is a pleasing result as respect for Hundertwasser is not contested by my claim, just the mode of thought.”
