I’ve been thinking about different types of holes – how they are made? what they do? what do they say? My first port of call is always a thesaurus. Here are the words that caught my eye.
Opening: Gap, Lacuna, Aperture, Split, Crack, Leak, Hollow, Cavity, Pocket
Perforation: Piercing, Puncture, Borehole, Pinhole, Eyelet
Orifice: Pore, Nostril, Embouchure,
Window: Porthole, Peephole, Squint
Doorway: Threshold, Scuttle
Open Space: Clearing, View
Tunnel: Oesophagus, Vent hole
Perforator: Borer, Gimlet, Wimble, Drill, Stiletto
Open: Unfold, Bare, Unrip, Force Open, Rip, Tear, Separate, Unclench
Pierce: Lance, Poke, Pepper, Punch, Drain, Penetrate
The photos are of a Work in Progress (just started). These holes are defined and precise but are they eyelets to squint through or a filter to let sound through?
