The fold: the Baroque invents the infinite work or process. The problem is not how to finish a fold, but how to continue it, to have it go through the ceiling, how to bring it to infinity. It is not only because the fold affects all materials that it thus becomes expensive matter, with different scales, speeds, and different vectors (mountains and waters, papers, fabrics, living issues, the brain), but especially becuase it determines and materializes Form. It produces a form of expression, a Gestating, the genetic element or infinite line of inflection, the curve with a unique variable.”
