Carla Accardi Part 2

Talking about unboundedness reminds me that my earlier post about Carla Accardi has a  mistake. Her standing rolls of “Sicofoil” are not tubes, they are rolled up sheets, so they are not unbounded in the horizontal dimension, and they have a seam or an overlap. Maybe they are better works for that, but I’m still pondering the idea of a transparent tube as a picture surface.
