The Intertwining / the chiasm

'A figural situation denotes a gesture of framing, cutting-out, a distinction of an outline of a surface or a platform, a form within a form, a form around a form; therefore the figural dynamics contains a bilateral movement from a form to a plat-form and back from the platform to a form. Erich Auerbach, Figura

In his Physics, Aristotle defined the Topos as the inner surface of a thing which contains another moving thing. The figure occurs at the borderline between a moving thing and another thing through which the former passes.

[platfrom / l'aplat / field]
