Edges and boundaries are things that define, organize, and relationally provide the framework of our existence. They are a symbiotic necessity in understanding spaces and ideas, whereas the separation of two or more things in fact defines a logic to the very nature of those things. Edges allow things to exist outside ourselves, therefore rendering our understanding of both ourselves and those things relationally incomplete. So, without fully comprehending, humans project boundaries that define their understanding. It is with this knowledge that begs the question what would happen when projected edges are disrupted? The given site on Governor’s island is surrounded by well known symbols of American and/or urban ideals that could be considered indexical. According to Rosalind Krauss, an index can be defined as “that type of sign which arises as the physical manifestation of a cause, of which traces, imprints, and clues are examples.” The iconic nature of the skyline surrounding Governor’s island provides an indexical context to situate oneself to carefully study the boundary between the physical and metaphysical by creating a unique atmospheric condition through the process of monumentally disrupted and redefined progression.


The first step in understanding a pedagogical metaphysical platform was to first understand the given boundaries: the horizon and the perimeter of the island. Our initial drawings explore the intersection of these two axial boundaries. The axis of the island perimeter is intersected by the axis between the two most apparent visual identities: Liberty Island and the bell tower (the tallest structure on Governor’s Island). It is along this axis that we placed our disruption as an atmospheric condition.

The proposed walls highlight these two indexes as cognitive devices that inform a sense of identity and place. The resulting progression between these walls and around the redefined boundary of the water creates an emulated sense of displacement. It is this sense of displacement that we believe is a fundamental necessity to understand the concepts of the metaphysical realm.
