What is a line? The English word line comes from the Old English for rope and the Latin for flax or thread—line is tactile and material. The ancient Greek mathematician Euclid defined line as a “breadthless length,” a quantity of distance without width or depth¬. Line is also theoretical and immaterial. German-Swiss artist Paul Klee said simply, “A line is a dot that went for a walk.” Line is, whether real or imagined, visual.
